Who says that Lupita is "too little"? Not Chief Cobb, the friendly policeman. Not Mrs. Foote, the local gas station owner. Not even Mr. Grabb, the strange new visitor to town. But Mama always sighs, "Muy, muy chica", every time Lupita tries to help out at the restaurant that Mama runs all by herself. But when push comes to shove -- or, in this case, when Grabb comes to swipe -- everyone in this exciting tale discovers that, although Lupita may be too little for some tasks, she is big enough for others. This entertaining tale will have children and adults panting for breath as they try to keep up with Lupita, racing along toward an exciting conclusion.
