Ref: 16617

An extended family argue about what their newborn's name should be. In truly democratic style, the child is named after all 8 name suggestions, creating the longest, most beautiful, of names. But, will this little tongue-twister prove an asset or a hindrance in later life? Based on the Japanese folktale of Jugemu, a tale which has spanned at least 3 continents but, says the author, which missed Hispanic America. Relocated here, to Mexico, a comical retelling with a wonderful smattering of Spanish words. Cuban-American author and Argentinean illustrator. Age 4-7, Paperback 28pp
