FRIENDSHIP WEEK: "Kichi in Jungle Jeopardy"

KICHI IN JUNGLE JEOPARDY (Blooming Tree Press, 2006)
Here's the Library of Congress description:

After learning of a plot by the jungle animals to start a war between the Mayan humans, a rare blue Chihuahua dog named Kichi tries to foil the scheme by finding the only person he knows who can speak Dog.

Midwest Book Review called it: "a charming tale of love and loyalty."

Kichi, a rare blue Chihuahua, has lived his whole life pampered by Fortune Teller at the temple in the Mayan city of Chilaam. Still he is lonely. No matter how much he tries, he can't teach Fortune Teller to speak Dog. When Fortune Teller's brother captures a new slave from a rival city, Kichi can't believe his luck. The new boy, Uxmal, can speak Dog! Just as Kichi makes a new friend, raiders attack Chilaam and kidnap Uxmal. Now Kichi must brave the dangerous jungle to save his friend.
