Tomás es hijo de trabajadores migratorios. Cada verano, él y su familia viajan a Iowa, desde Tejas, donde pasan largos y difíciles días en el campo, durante la temporada de la cosecha de frutas y verduras. Por las noches, a veces, se reúnen a escuchar los maravillosos cuentes de papá grande, el abuelo de Tomás. Con el tiempo, Tomás se aprende todos los cuentos de memoria. Hay muchos otros cuentos en la biblioteca – le dice papá grande. Y al día siguiente, Tomás conoce a la señora de la biblioteca, quien le abre las puertas a un nuevo mundo.

There are many other stories in the library - Big Daddy tells him. And the next day, Tomás meets the lady from the library, who opens the doors to a new world.
