In her first book for children, award-winning author Lucha Corpi remembers her childhood growing up in J�ltipan, Mexico, where the moon hung low and the fireflies flickered in the night air.

In vivid and poetic detail, she recalls exploring with her brother the old haunted house of the legendary revolutionary Juan Sebasti�n, discovering the music that came from the jukebox at the local cantina, and getting caught by their mother for their mischievous adventures.

Most of all, she remembers the ballads her father sang and the stories her grandmother told. In her stories, her grandmother passes on an important message about growing up-each person, like the revolutionary Juan Sebasti�n, has a destiny to follow.
