Written and illustrated by Yuyi Morales
Yuyi Morales uses vibrant mixed-media illustrations to tell the story of her immigration to the United States with her son. At times overwhelmed by the unknowns in their new country, mother and son find refuge and joy when they discover San Francisco's public library and the incredible worlds to be discovered inside books.
Beautiful, deliberate language in both the Spanish and English editions points to Yuyi's close collaboration with renowned translator Teresa Mlawer and her long-time editor, Neal Porter. In this fascinating interview, Yuyi Morales and Neal Porter discuss the current state of US immigration and what led them to publish this important book.
