Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Doña Flor is a giant woman who lives in a puebla with lots of families. She loves her neighbors-she lets the children use her flowers for trumpets, and the families use her leftover tortillas for rafts. So when a huge puma is terrifying the village, of course Flor is the one to investigate.<br> Featuring Spanish words and phrases throughout, as well as a glossary, Pat Mora's story, along with Raúl Colón's glorious artwork, makes this a treat for any reader, tall or small. Award-winning author Pat Mora's previous book with Raúl Colón, Tomás and the Library Lady, received the Tomás Rivera Mexican American Children's Book Award, an IRA Teacher's Choice Award, a Skipping Stones Award, and was also named a Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List title and an Americas Award for Children's and Young Adult Literature commended title. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
