It's Grandma Beetle's birthday, and Senor Calavera (a skeleton from the Day of the Dead) doesn't know what to bring to her party. "Don't worry," says Zelmiro the Ghost. "You surely must know, the best present to give a friend is the thing she would love the most." So instead of choosing just one gift, Senor Calavera chooses: Un Acordeon: An accordion for her to dance to. Bigotes: A mustache because she had none. Cosquillas: Tickles to make her laugh. Un Chiflido: A whistle he trapped in a bag. And so on. . . .
