The people of the pueblo like the huge maguey that grows on the land of Don César. But Miguel likes it most of all. To him it is the best plant in the world. So at Christmastime, when Don César threatens to chop down the maguey to make room for a very fine house, it is Miguel who comes up with a glittering plan to save it. Joyful collage illustrations and a beautifully paced text celebrate the spirit of community in a picture book rich with the tradition and landscape of Mexico.
