Magda's Tortillas / Las Tortillas De Magda by Becky
Chavarria-Chairez, Julia Mercedes Castilla (Translator), Anne Vega (Illustrator)
Even at the advanced age of seven, Magda Madrigal can remember back
to when she was a little girl and would watch her abuela making tortillas.
Having studied techniques of a master, she now feels confident of her
own ability to turn out beautiful, delicious, and round tortillas. But
somehow the rolling pin and the kitchen comal still hold a few surprises
for the perplexed Magda and for her delighted family. Great art isn't
always pretty, but in the case of "tortilla artist" Magda Madrigal
at least it's tasty.
