"Spirit Games" tells the story of a popular character from Colombian folklore. Several children told me this story in Belalcazar, a small town in the coffee-growing region of Colombia. 

The spirit in the story has the power to change into different shapes and loves to play tricks. Do you know anyone who likes to play jokes on other people?
