About this product
- DescriptionEvery day, Sun God enjoys rich cacao beans, grown from the cacao trees on the banks of the Great Pond. Wind God encourages him to share with the people of the earth, but Sun God refuses. So Wind God transforms into a rana azul, a blue frog, and spies on the Sun God. When Wind God discovers where the greedy God hides his stash of chocolate delights, he tells los nis from the village. The Aztec people search for the treasure and soon discover the secret food of the Gods, the cacao bean. This vividly illustrated book, inspired by Mayan and Aztec art, comes complete with a recipe for hot cocoa. Delicioso!
