    (Bilingual humor) “Brilliant…different to the average children's book…. teaching at the same time. Fantastic book.” – Amanda Williams. A mysterious visitor brings intrigue, excitement, and humor to a biracial family.

Elena is a sensible child. Unlike her wacked-out brother Benjamin, she sticks to reason and facts—but not for long.
