Synopsis

In an all-new adventure, Magda Madrigal returns in her second book to celebrate another family birthday. This time, Magda's got a task that requires a little creativity--and a little magic.

Magda's tío has purchased the perfect piñata for her little brother's birthday. In fact, Gabriel's piñata is so perfect that he insists that no one break it. What fun is a birthday party without a piñata? But how can the neighborhood children break the piñata without breaking Gabriel's heart?

Magda's so worried about the conundrum that she can's get any sleep. Finally, with the help of her abuela's resourceful little cat, Tita, Magda works some midnight magic and engineers an ingenious solution to save the party and the piñata.

The talented creators of Magda's Tortillas / Las tortillas de Magda have reunited to delight children with a whimsical tale featuring the birthday tradition of the piñata.
