Reviews

* "This essential story conveys the warmth of community in just one serving." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Fun, fast-moving story with likable characters... Urquijo-Ruiz's translation does a wonderful job of bringing this tale to Spanish-speaking audiences, as they'll delight in watching Art and his papi problem-solve and make the tastiest, healthiest juice. The story focuses on how community members come together to help one another heal, from Art's stepdad to the local market vendors, who all share juice at the story's close." -- Booklist

"Liu-Trujillo's watercolor-esque illustrations add verve and specificity to each character and convey the closeness both of this extended family and the vibrant, predominantly Black and brown neighborhood in which they live. A wonderful story of a community that takes care of its own." -- Kirkus Reviews
