***STARRED REVIEW***
"[T]his tale will delight readers... A charming concept and holiday book--count on this one to be a future favorite." --Kirkus
"Tonatiuh has created a wonderful counting book that is visually appealing and educational...Written in Spanish and English, it presents many opportunities for readers to learn about the holiday and its rich traditions, as well as to learn counting...A great choice for libraries looking to add holiday or counting books to their collection for younger children." --School Library Journal
Tonatiuh's stylized mixed-media illustrations, inspired by the same pre-Columbian art traditions as his cultural and historical retellings will draw readers in.This clever counting book introduces this important part of Día de Muertos celebrations in an accessible and eye-catching format. --Horn Book
