for Old Letivia and the Mountain of Sorrows by Nicholasa Mohr and Rudy Gutierrez
At the entrance of the rain forest, on the island of Borinquen, lived Old Letivia. She shared her bohio with her friend and companion, a whistling turtle named Cervantes, and the child Simon. The townspeople were suspicious of Letivia and kept their distance--until the day an evil Wild Wind began to devastate the town, and only Letivia knew the secrets to conquer such a foe. Full color.
