Unp. $15.95. "Is it a really big surprise, Mama?" As Mama and
Marco watch the parade, several surprises delight them. But Mama states
that the best surprise will be even better than the marching band, the
fire engines, or the candy that is tossed to the crowd. Marco cannot
imagine what could be better! When he spots Abuelo, his grandfather,
leading the war veterans in the parade, however, he agrees that it is
the best surprise of all! Colorful illustrations complement the text.
