If I could put myself in the book, I would be the kid who has to stay in is house. I would want to be that kid because he could never leave his house. He doesn't know that much about life.
I would also like to be him because he has a friend named Maria who takes care of him. She tells him about Mexican folktales. Lastly, I would want to be him because he is scared to talk to people and he doesn't have much friends.
