“Tia Lola is back with the same wit and charm we saw in How Tia Lola Came to Stay. Now that she is, hopefully, in Vermont for good, Tia Lola becomes a part of the community by sharing her language and culture -- and love -- with her neighbors.”
-- Beth Puffer, Bank Street Bookstore, New York, NY


Description
TIa Lola has been invited to teach Spanish at her niece and nephew's elementary school. But Miguel wants nothing to do with the arrangement. He hasn't had an easy time adjusting to his new school in Vermont and doesn't like living so far away from Papi, who has a new girlfriend and an announcement to make. On the other hand, Miguel's little sister, Juanita, can't wait to introduce her colorfully dressed aunt with her migrating beauty mark to all her friends at school--that is, if she can stop getting distracted long enough to remember to do so. Before long, TIa Lola is organizing a Spanish treasure hunt and a "Carnaval" fiesta at school. Will Miguel be willing to join the fun? Will Juanita get her head out of the clouds and lead her classmates to victory in the treasure hunt?
Told with abundant humor and heart, Julia Alvarez's new TIa Lola story is the long-awaited sequel to the beloved "How TIa Lola Came to Visit Stay.
