Reviews
"Another first-rate collection from a perceptive and sensitive chronicler of ordinary life."--The Horn Book (starred review)

"As always, Soto shows that the concerns and triumphs of Latino children are no different from anyone's, and . . . their misadventures are treated with a light touch."--Kirkus Reviews

"The stories show the humor of growing up as well as the anguish."--Booklist
