Curious Carmelita

By Patricia McFadden

Illustrated by Robin McFadden


Carmelita is a young  coatimundi who lives in the mountains of Southeast Arizona.  Her family thinks Carmelita’s questions are annoying and her Abuela’s stories are a waste of time. However, when a hungry jaguarundi shows up, it is Carmelita’s curiosity and one of Abuela's stories that save the day.  Curious Carmelita includes an appendix of Nature Notes about coatimundis, jaguarundis and other creatures that live in Carmelita’s neck of the woods.
