It happens all the time. As soon as the car pulls away, someone needs the bathroom.

"Where is un baño? ¿Dónde está? I really do need one," I told mi mamá.

After racing around town, passing a gushing fountain, and cutting the inevitable line for the ladies' room, this adorable little girl makes it to the bathroom in the nick of time. And because the bathroom is in a restaurant, the family stays for a wonderful meal-and lots of limonada. . . .

Buoyant illustrations and a clever mix of Spanish and English combine to capture the urgency and humor of the situation to the delight of kids and grown-ups alike.

Illustrated by G. Brian Karas.

"Brilliantly conceived...Readers will find these multi-textured illustrations fascinating and as imaginative as the concept." -Kirkus Reviews

"Each of Elya's couplets seamlessly introduces or reinforce two Spanish words, while the cunning rhyme scheme helps readers with their pronunciation...An appealingly painless introduction to another language." -Booklist
