Ganador del Americas Prize.

Mamá, Papá y los seis hermanos y hermanas viven detrás de esta mágica tienda. Su terraza en el techo provee una vista de la ciudad y de los volcanes cercanos. Los papás del narrador huyeron de China y se refugiaron en América Central, donde establecieron sus negocios. La gente viene de toda la ciudad e incluso de la provincia para comprar telas de colores vivos, hilos brillantes y otros accesorios para la costura y la sastrería, artes por las cuales los nativos guatemaltecos son famosos.
