TITO'S MEXICAN VACATION, #111 TITO'S MEXICAN VACATION, #111
Maya notices something’s wrong with Tito. He’s not interested in playing soccer or eating ice cream. Is he sick? It turns out he’s homesick. It all starts when Tito gets a postcard from his cousins in Mexico. Tito misses them and misses his former home. Maya, eager to help her cousin feel better, decides that if they can’t take Tito back to Mexico, they’ll bring Mexico to Tito! Maya ropes the rest of the gang into helping her with the research and acquisition of Mexican objects, foods, and information. Events escalate with typically Maya-esque results, and pretty soon the Community Center is packed with all things Mexican. Unfortunately, one thing leads to another, and the entire display is destroyed… right before Tito gets to the Center. Maya is mortified, but Tito is happy. Seeing how much everyone cared about him helped to lift his homesickness. After all, he is home with Maya, too. Just then the big surprise appears: Tito’s cousins, brought from Mexico!
Vocabulary words: family, cousins, aunt, uncle
PRINCE TITO, #112 PRINCE TITO, #112
To help Tito overcome his stage fright, Maya convinces him to audition for a community theater performance called “The Doubtful Prince.” Maya promises Tito that she’ll get the female lead and be right with him onstage the whole time. But when the director casts Tito in the lead and Maya in a bit part, Tito is bound for stardom – but only if Maya can find a way to keep him from freezing up in front of the audience on opening night.
Vocabulary words: actresses, director, curtain, play
THE BULLY AND THE BUNNY, #113 THE BULLY AND THE BUNNY, #113
A hulking new kid named Jimmy McCorkle moves in across the street and – at least it seems to Miguel and his friends – begins to bully everyone around. He kicks Miguel’s soccer ball over their building, rips apart Maya’s favorite video game, and commands Theo to remember his name…or else. Maya, however, is not so sure; she thinks maybe Jimmy’s not so bad. When Jimmy buys Maya and Miguel’s favorite bunny rabbit from the pet store, Maya decides they have to find out once and for all whether Jimmy really is a bully, or just misunderstood.
Vocabulary words: mother, father, brother, sister
FAMILY TIME, #114 FAMILY TIME, #114
Noticing that everyone in her family is overworked, overtired, and overstressed, Maya concludes that they all have been missing "family time" – quality time spent alone as a family. Maya and Miguel plan a camping trip to a state park – and do all the planning and packing themselves to make things easier on their very busy parents and grandmother. But when they arrive at their campsite, the kids have forgotten some essentials, and rain, wildlife, and a capsized boat threaten to make their escape a disaster. In the end, however, the Santos family discovers the only thing they really need is time together.
Vocabulary words: mountain, lake, tree
SURPRISE, SURPRISE, #115 SURPRISE, SURPRISE, #115
Chrissy is down in the dumps because the pop star Enrique has not answered the hundreds of fan letters she has sent. So Maya decides to cheer her up with a surprise birthday party. When all the party preparations — from the cake to the décor to the entertainment — go awry, Maya reasons there’s only one way to salvage things: get Enrique himself to show up! With Miguel and Abuelita at her side, Maya braves hordes of Enrique-maniacs in an effort to convince the megastar to make an appearance at her friend’s birthday.
