Synopsis: The msgical story of El Dias de Los Reyes (Three king's Day) and how it almost didn't happen - until Raton Perez, the clever little mouse, and Senora Margarita, the ladybug, save the day. The non-religious book celebrates the Hispanic folk tradition.

From Booklist: Ages 4^-8. The January 6 Hispanic holiday El Dia de los Reyes, Three Kings' Day, is the special holiday when the Three Kings travel through the sky on their royal camels to bring presents to children. This story about the holiday begins with real suspense: "Once it almost didn't happen." The jealous horses in the palace in the sky trick the camels into carrying the kings, not to the children on earth, but in a circle back home to the palace. Then Raton Perez, the little mouse, and Senora Margarita, the ladybug, save the night by setting the clock back so that the kings can start all over again on their journey. No sources are given, so it's not clear what has been "adapted" for this folktale. The mouse-ladybug contrivance with time is not well integrated into the story, but the trickery is entertaining, the colorful folk-art pictures add a sense of pageantry, and the colloquial narrative smoothly integrates Spanish expressions into the storytelling. A companion audiotape is available. Hazel Rochman
