A great book for Halloween. It's a very sweet (and not scary) story of two twin sisters trying to find each other. The formula of the repeated obstacles for Rosita coming back from the land of the day got slightly repetitive for me, but it was the tension in the story that was otherwise a really awesome description of building an altar for a departed loved one.

I only bothered to read the rhymes in Spanish the first time through and I really liked them. I also liked the cartoon-art pictures. It's a little long to read aloud to young children, but the rhymes help with that.

My husband bought me this! I am so lucky ...
