Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Dianne's story makes the Legend of the Blue Frog come to life! You can lose yourself in her imagined sounds of the rain forest and almost taste the chocolate!" -Ann Streiffer, co-owner, Blue Frog Chocolates Every day, Sun God enjoys rich cacao beans, grown from the cacao trees on the banks of the Great Pond. Wind God encourages him to share with the people of the earth, but Sun God refuses. So Wind God transforms into a rana azul, a blue frog, and spies on the Sun God. When Wind God discovers where the greedy God hides his stash of chocolate delights, he tells los ni os from the village. The Aztec people search for the treasure and soon discover the secret food of the Gods, the cacao bean. This vividly illustrated book, inspired by Mayan and Aztec art, comes complete with a recipe for hot cocoa. Delicioso!

Synopsis:

A long, long time ago, the Sun God spent his days enjoying a very special secret treat: rich, dark cacao. Unlike the Wind God, the Sun God did not want to share this heavenly food with the creatures of the Earth. One day, the Wind God transformed himself into the Rana Azul, or Blue Frog, and he taught the children of the Earth where to find the secret cacao beans through song. A recipe for hot chocolate and a sprinkling of Spanish words and phrases enhance this intricately illustrated foodie fable.
