Abstract

&quot;Mickey Rangel, kid detective extraordinaire, has just exited the school bus one sweltering afternoon when he hears a blood-curdling shriek. It’s coming from the creepy neighbor lady’s house. Señorita Andrade, known as La Bruja Andrade to all the neighborhood kids, is as old as the moon, wrinkled like a prune, and smells like moth balls. But she’s in trouble, so Mickey forgoes the cool, refreshing glass of lemonade he planned to buy from Tina’s stand and instead goes to help the supposed witch.<br><br>&apos;My lemons, Mickey, my prize-winning lemons. They’re gone. They’re all gone,&apos; Señorita Andrade cries. The tree was covered with fruit just that morning, but Mickey can see that it’s true: there’s not one lemon on the tree. She is famous for her lemons. One of the reasons everyone thinks the woman is a witch is because she somehow manages to keep lemons on the tree year round. And for years she has won first prize in the annual Lemon Festival and Lowrider Bicycle Show. In t
