All Dominguita wants to do is read the books in Spanish that Abuela gave to her just before she moved away. They were brought all the way from Cuba when she was a young girl. It helps her feel like Abuela’s still there with her. A favorite, Don Quixote, tells of a brave knight errant trying to do good deeds, and now, in DEFINITELY DOMINGUITA: KNIGHT OF THE CAPE, Dominguita decides she will become a knight to help stand up to the class bully. In her second adventure, CAPTAIN DOM’S TREASURE, she and her crew decide to be pirates seeking for real lost treasure.
