Description


A long, long time ago in ancient Mexico, the sun disappeared. Everything was dark, and the people were afraid. The animals decided to search for the sun through the fields and forests, rivers and lakes. But the sun was nowhere to be found. At last the animals stopped looking - all except the lizard. This is the story of a brave little lizard who would not give up until she had brought back light and warmth to everyone.

Hace mucho, muchísimo tiempo, en el México antiguo, el sol despareció. Todo la tierra se obscureció y la gente tenía miedo. Los animales salieron en busca de sol por los campos y bosques, los ríos y los lagos. Pero el sol no estaba en ninguna parte. Al no encontrarlo, todos los animales abandonaron la búsqueda, excepto la lagartija. Ésta es le historia de una lagartija valiente que no quiso darse por vencida hasta poder restaurarles a todos la luz y el calor.
