Isabela Huffman is a precocious 8 year old girl who can't seem to keep herself out of trouble on a visit to Guanajuato, Mexico with her mother. She wants to be the president when she grows up. Or a ballerina. Or the president and a ballerina. She's dramatic. She sings on the bus, screams like a baby after putting chile powder on her fresh mango, and convinces her mom to buy five pair of new shoes for a big family.
A great novel for true beginners that uses a vocabulary of only 200 Spanish words to tell a 2,200 word story. It is repetitive and simple and uses many cognates to make the book comprehensible to beginning students.
