Que Vola, NOLA? What's Up, NOLA?
From the vibrant jazz scenes and Spanish-colonial architecture to the food and weather, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Havana, Cuba, have much in common. And they are both home to anole lizards who love jazz!
After a jazz song lures Ramito through a hotel window in Havana, he crawls into in a convenient, comfy suitcase for a nap. When he awakens, Ramito can't quite find the way back to his tree. His new friend Bernard, an American anole lizard, unsuccessfully tries to convince Ramito that he's in New Orleans. Is he? Readers of all ages will find the lush, tropical illustrations and the frustrated refrain of "but that is something we have in Havana" endlessly entertaining. In fact, they just might agree that the cities, and their inhabitants, share a lot!
