PEPITA ON PEPPER STREET/PEPITA EN LA CALLE PEPPER
Pepita is almost always a happy girl. But she isn’t today because everything is different and strange on Pepper Street, the new neighborhood where her family moved. She doesn’t like that she can’t visit her old grocery store and she missed her old tortilleria. Several new neighbors try to greet her and her dog Lobo, but Pepita avoid them. Later on Pepita learns that making new friends isn't so hard after all.
