MEDIA REVIEWS

"The illustrations are comical, and not at all frightening, which will enable children of all ages to enjoy the book. A wonderful addition to bilingual collections in elementary and public libraries."--Criticas

"this is a far cry from the decorative taxidermy of many texts on holidays; instead, this evokes the spirit of the Festival in the way that kids will appreciate."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"a cute, funny, little book that will be enjoyed by kids of all ages. The funny looking skeletons, created by renowned Mexican artist Luis San Vicente and the hilarious verses that accompany each illustration make fun of death while, at the same time, introducing young kids to the ancient Aztec celebration of the Day of the Dead ... Highly recommended!"--Reforma

"One of the most whimsical books about the Day of the Dead"--LatinoLA
