There is actually a mystery story that involves a brother and sister named Fede and Carmen, their friend Maria, and Maria's parents Alicia and Pedro. Other characters include a crook,  Ramon, a local police officer and Maria's dog Guau Guau.

In the story, you travel with Carmen and Pedro to Villaterresto to see Maria and her parents (and of course…her dog.) The three friends discover that there is a family treasure and they begin to look for clues to help them find  where it is hidden.

The story is illustrated with colorful comic book style drawings. Each part  of the story includes a box that highlights the Spanish vocabulary used in the  chapter. After every part of the story, an element of Spanish is highlighted.  These intermissions include adjectives, verbs, tenses, pronouns, reflexive verbs  and conditional expressions. The reader then gets a chance to exercise their new- found ability in the next part of the story.

Easy Spanish is a great way to refresh your high school Spanish or to start  from scratch. The story makes the lessons fun for teens and adults and provides  a vehicle to use what has been learned. In a word, it's awesome!
