The Fiesta Dress by Caren McNelly McCormack, illustrated by Martha Aviles Junco
A good sibling rivalry picture book which also incorporates the quinceanera tradition. Lolo is usually the center of attention, but not on her sister's quinceanera day. She accidentally sets in motion a potential disaster by letting the dog out to play. Of course, she fixes everything and her older sister makes her a special part of the party. One thing confused me. I always thought it was one tamal, two tamales. This author uses the word tamale, which I've always been told isn't actually a word.
