Review
Gr 1-3 –This book features three easy-to-read stories about two Puerto Rican tree frogs, enterprising Rafi and his younger sister, Rosi. In the first story, Rafi announces that for a nickel, he'll turn gray sand white or black. Actually, he's passing a magnet under his sandbox and he manages to trick Rosi and a couple of friends before he is found out. Next, he almost convinces Rosi that the stars have fallen from the sky and are twinkling in the bay. It's the algae in the water that causes the sea to shimmer with bioluminescence (explained in an epilogue). Finally, it is Rosi's turn to help her big brother out when his beloved pet, a cobito , or small hermit crab, disappears. The teasing banter and tender rapport between the siblings are the most appealing features of these stories. Delacre's brightly colored cartoon illustrations add detail and a light touch. There is also a helpful glossary of Spanish words/phrases, and an appended "Did You Know About…" section adds some interesting facts about Puerto Rico.–Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA --Marilyn Taniguchi (Reviewed March 1, 2004) (School Library Journal, vol 50, issue 3, p156)
