About this title

Synopsis:

A long, long time ago, the Sun God spent his days enjoying a very special secret treat: rich, dark cacao. Unlike the Wind God, the Sun God did not want to share this heavenly food with the creatures of the Earth. One day, the Wind God transformed himself into the Rana Azul, or Blue Frog, and he taught the children of the Earth where to find the secret cacao beans through song. A recipe for hot chocolate and a sprinkling of Spanish words and phrases enhance this intricately illustrated foodie fable.

From the Inside Flap:

"Dianne's story makes the Legend of the Blue Frog come to life! You can lose yourself in her imagined sounds of the rain forest and almost taste the chocolate!"
-Ann Streiffer, co-owner, Blue Frog Chocolates

Each day, Sun God savors his rich, dark cacao beans. But Wind God believes Sun God should share su tesoro, his treasure, with the people of the earth. When Sun God refuses, Wind God transforms into una rana azul, a blue frog, and spies on the greedy god.

While disguised as Rana Azul, Wind God spreads the word about Sun God's secret stash of cacao to the village children. Los ni�os alert their mothers and fathers, and they all begin to search for the sweet-tasting treat and soon make a divine discovery. They name the tasty substance from the cacao bean "cacahuatl," which we know today as chocolate.

Aztec- and Mayan-inspired illustrations and a recipe for a steaming mug of hot cocoa complete this tasty tale. �Delicioso!
