A lyrical picture book inspired by a traditional Central American Indigenous story with an environmental theme.
Itzel loves to hear her nana tell the story about the giant snake that must be awakened to bring the rain. But most people no longer believe in the snake, so it has retreated. And now Itzel and her nana, and all the creatures of the jungle, are desperate for rain for their crops. So Itzel decides she must find and awaken the snake herself. Though she sets out in the night alone, Itzel is soon joined by an ocelot and other jungle creatures in need of rain. But will their search be in vain?
Kids who travel with Itzel deep into the nighttime jungle will not soon forget the amazing journey.
