I loved the story of The Little Red Hen when I was a child, and this story puts a whole new twist on the old fable. Follow Iguana as she tries to get her friends to help her prepare for a great fiesta (party) on sabado (Saturday). With each new day, Iguana becomes more frustrated with her friends' excuses. Conejo (co Nay ho - Rabbit) is much too fast to help, Tortuga (tor TU gah - tortoise) is much too slow, and Culebra (cu Lay brah - snake) will have to try to grow arms tonight so that maybe he can help Iguana manana. Sabado arrives, and the fiesta begins, but Iguana whips her tail around in angry circles when her friends think they can attend the party. The lazy friends can only watch from afar as Iguana and her party guests enjoy their evening. But the story is far from over: read Manana, Iguana to see what her friends do to surprise Iguana on domingo (Sunday).
