The Dog Who Loved Tortillas (La perrita que le encantaban las tortillas)

by Benjamin Alire Sáenz and Geronimo Garcia

Almost at the exact same minute, Little Diego and his big sister Gabriela think about getting a dog. Gabriela wants a girl dog and Little Diego wants a boy dog. Gabriela finds the cutest girl dog at the pound, but Little Diego gets to pick her name. Sofie. And that's when the real arguments begin. "She belongs to me," says Diego. "No, she's mine," says Gabriela.

It's only when Sofie gets really sick that Little Diego and Gabriela find out who their tortilla-loving pup really belongs to.
