Reviews

"[I]nsightful. ...The poems, and the accurate English translations, are well laid out on the page and neatly complemented by primitive-looking scratchboard illustrations. ...[Carries] significant emotional poignancy." --School Library Journal

"These truly bilingual poems are packed with poignant, tender moments in the life of a Mexican immigrant child trying to fit in without losing his identity." --Horn Book Guide
