A riotous tale of two very different brothers. Alonzo’s big brother, Don Carlos, always wants “más,” more. If Alonzo eats one ice cream cone, Don Carlos eats four. When Alonzo wears one hat, Don Carlos puts on seven. Trouble begins when Don Carlos decides to add snails to the menu of his village restaurant, and snails eat their way through the village. The brothers bring in birds, then pigs, and the village is overrun with the pigs trying to eat everything in sight before Alonzo has an idea that may save the day.

"This humorous, gentle story smoothly incorporates Spanish words and phrases (defined, with pronunciation, in the glossary at the front of the book) into a rollicking narrative that will carry young listeners with it. Greenseid's antic, primitive acrylic illustrations in bright, hot colors provide a fitting accompaniment to this jazzy tale."–School Library Journal
