9781558857711: The Cucuy Stole My Cascarones / El Coco me robo los cascarones

Mighty Monster Mysteries! Roberto and his mother made thirty dozen confetti-filled eggs, or cascarones, for his birthday party. Roberto can't wait to crack the hollowed, painted and confetti-stuffed eggs over his friends' heads. But, when he goes to the kitchen to get the cascarones, they're gone! The only clue they ever existed is a trail of confetti that leads to a shadow. The shadow of the cucuy, or boogeyman!

A party isn't a party without cascarones. So, even though the cucuy has scary eyes, sharp claws and pointy fangs, Roberto resolves to get them back. He grabs his little red wagon with the squeaky wheels and follows the trail of confetti, only to discover the tamales, cake and pinata for his party also have been swiped by the cucuy!

Children ages 4 8 will follow along in breathless anticipation as brave Roberto conquers his fears and sets out to get his party back. Author Spelile Rivas and illustrator Valeria Cervantes team up again in this engaging sequel to their award-winning debut, No Time for Monsters / No hay tiempo para monstruos.
