Publisher Comments:

It's a mystery to me, is a common refrain heard in the six stories included in this bilingual collection for young readers as children and their families are faced with odd mysteries in their daily lives. Abuela can't understand why there are odd indentations in her flour container. But it all becomes clear when her grandchildren's frog races feature very white frogs that are easily seen in the green grass Ten-year-old Mario or Mario the Magnificent delights in doing magic shows for his family. But one trick goes inexplicably awry when Pinky the hamster really disappears during the finale Children take the lead in these amusing and entertaining stories as they try to solve mystifying puzzles that occur in day-to-day activities. The conundrums frequently involving pets and loving family members are sure to grab the interest of early readers, whether reading the stories on their own or in the warmth of their parents' laps.
