One birthday party, one grandma who loves to cook, one delicious Mexican meal, one cake, one piñata, one bag of candy, one big present, lots of children, grandchildren, aunts, uncles and cousins, and several surprise visitors. Mix all the ingredients into a fun romp. Add comic illustrations, jaunty rhythms, and playful refrains.
