In this collection of Mexican dichos (proverbs), artists Ralfka Gonzalez and Ana Ruiz bring to life their favorite sayings from Mexico and the United States. These dichos celebrate life and culture, reminding young readers that “Donde hay gana, hay mana / Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” With vibrant color and folk art flavor, the festive paintings draw readers into a whimsical world where bumblebees play bongo drums and roosters sing all day. The cloth edition is an American Booksellers Kids’ Pick of the Lists and a National Parenting Publications Gold Medal Winner. “One might describe this book with the dicho, ‘Chiquito pero picoso.’ Small, but very hot.” — Children’s Book Review “Brilliantly hued...somewhere between a southwestern sensibility and the look of urban graffiti...” — Publishers Weekly
