Resource Description

“A Mexican boy tells of his journey to the U.S. with his family. They must face many dangers to cross the border, only to experience the uncertainty felt by many undocumented immigrants. The narrative is accompanied by one long, beautifully vivid illustration reminiscent of pre-Hispanic codices, packaged as an accordion-style foldout frieze.

Un niño mexicano habla de su viaje a los Estados Unidos con su familia. Deben enfrentar muchos peligros para cruzar la frontera, solo para tropezar con la incertidumbre que sienten muchos inmigrantes indocumentados. La narración se acompaña de una ilustración larga, bellamente vívida que recuerda a los códices prehispánicos, empaquetados como un friso desplegable en forma de acordeón.”
