Yes, it is hard to find the right one to marry, even if your a beautiful cuban cockroach named, Martina.. Who knew cockroaches had such beauty. This Cuban folktale is a fun read for any age. The illustrations are vivid and tell a story all by itself. I would use this book during Hispanic heritage month even though my current placement does not acknowledge it. I liked the mixed language used. This gave the story a littl more definition.
