Magic Tortilla (excerpt)
“When Grandpa was out of sight, Bejamín
called out to Alejandra and Daniel. “Hey
come here, I have something to tell you.
“What is it, Benny? asked Alejandra.
Benjamin motioned for them to gather
together into a huddle.
“Did you see what I saw on the tortilla?”
whispered Bejamín. “You gotta believe me. I
saw the shape of a bear on the burnt part of
the tortilla that Grandpa made this
“You saw a bear, Benny?” asked Daniel,
surprised. “But it wasn’t a bear because I
saw a dolphin.”
“What bear? A dolphin?” said Alejandra. “I
didn’t see a thing.”
The two boys looked at Alejandra. Bejamín
took her hand. “Come on Alejandra, I’ll show
you! Let’s go inside and get the tortilla so
you can see for yourself.”
