Esperanza then focuses on the property's one crowning glory: a giant tree which is both home to a family of squirrels and the sight of the First Annual Tarzan Jumping Contest, which Meme won at the cost of two broken arms. The neighborhood children, like Meme, are determined, imaginative, and reckless in their play.
