About the Author

Arthur Dorros (arthurdorros.com) vivió en Nueva York en donde disfrutaba de observar la ciudad desde el tejado de su edificio. Le fascina el gran número de personas en Estados Unidos que conservan fuertes lazos con sus orígenes étnicos, pues tienan la riqueza de dos culturas y de dos lenguas. El Sr. Dorros es el autor de Tonight Is Carnaval (en español bajo el título de Por Fin es Carnaval) y de otros aclamados libros para niños, entre ellos Alligator Shoes, seleccionado por Reading Rainbow. Actualmente vive en Seattle, Washington.Elisa Kleven es la autora e ilustradora de Ernst. También ilustró B Is for Bethlehem de Isabel Wilner, considerado como sobresaliente, según la reseña de Booklist por sus atractivas y originales ilustraciones con su vitalidad folclórica y su estilo juvenil. La Sra. Kleven vive en Albany, California.

Reviews

Praise for Abuela

"A book to set any child dreaming...any reader can handle it, whether familiar with Spanish or not. It's just joyful."-The New York Times

* "A marvelous balancing of narrative simplicity with visual intricacy...the city is transformed into a treasure trove of jewels, dazzling the eye, uplifting the spirits."-The Horn Book (starred review)

* "Each illustration is a masterpiece of color, line, and form that will mesmerize youngsters...The smooth text, interspersed with Spanish words and phrases, provides ample context clues...a jewel."-Booklist (starred review)

"Dorros's text seamlessly weaves Spanish words and phrases into the English narrative, retaining a dramatic quality rarely found in bilingual picture books"--Publisher's Weekly

"Should prove useful not only for collections in which there is need for ethnic diversity, but also as enrichment for intellectually curious children who are intrigued by the exploration of another language."--School Library Journal
