By Antonio Hernandez Madrigal

Illustrated by Tomie dePaola

Erandi is excited. Tomorrow is her birthday, and Mama has promised her a present. But tomorrow brings unexpected worries. Their fishing net is full of holes and beyond repair. Suddenly Mama needs money to buy a new one. Erandi knows that the hair buyers have come up from the city to buy the beautiful thick braids of the village women. Antonio Hernandez Madrigal draws upon a past custom of buying the hair of the Tarascan women of Mexico in this tender story of a little girl's selflessness.
