Published by Arte Público Press
During one hot summer, best friends Elena and Alma start up competing snow cone stands to help their neighbors stay cool. Each girl devises elaborate plans to attract clients by decorating their stands with colorful Mexican crepe paper flowers and papel picado, adding exotic flavors to their menu and staging puppet shows and even a folkloric dance. The girls' ice shaving machines furiously crank out raspas, until one day both machines go bonkers!

Readers will enjoy Elena and Alma's clever antics to attract customers in this lively, colorful picture book for children. And just as important, kids will learn - along with the girls - that competitors can still be friends.
