this book was written by luis valdez and he writes the scripts of his teatros. his stories are fun to act out and are creative. for example the story about la muerte(death) which is about a young man that goes to war and when he comes home he gets a feeling someone is after him, but who? yes death is after him. find out what happens to him.
