Rate this:
Mayte and Pepito are convinced that Don Aparicio, the dour ice cream vendor, is really the bogeyman.
From the Publisher: The street vendors' animated calls fill Mayte's ears. "Plantains, avocados, mangos," shouts Don Luis. "Eggs, eggs," yells Don Maximo. "Ooooeeee!" whistles the blade sharpener. "Extra! Extra!" calls Cholo, who gives Mayte a wink and a smile along with the daily newspaper. Mayte enjoys the hustle and bustle of all the vendors' visits except for one: Don Aparicio, whose bitter disposition contrasts with the chorus of jingling bells on his ice cream cart. Mayte thinks that the grumpy ice cream man's true identity is the Bogeyman who steals children to eat or sell at the market. One day, Mayte and her best friend Pepito spy Don Aparicio carrying a bag with something struggling inside it. The brave pair decides to rescue the unlucky child. When they launch an attack, chaos ensues! Complemented by lively illustrations, this amusing picture book will delight young readers ages 3-7.
