About the Book

Marcelina lived in a small cage on the balcony of Señor Raul’s cantina in Mexico City. Every day she would lay eggs and Señor Raul would turn them into delicious huevos rancheros for his customers. Señor Raul loved to sing and always serenaded Marcelina with his sweet songs. But every night Marcelina would dream of the day when she would not have to live in a cage. A recipe for Huevos Rancheros is included in this poignant tale.
