Number one new release in children’s Hispanic and Latino books? Wow! Really? Esquivel! doesn’t publish until September—but if you insist, Amazon… :-)

Esquivel’s a Book—For Real

Zu-zu-POW! Look what came in the mail today from the fab folks at Charlesbridge Publishing!


Esquivel! Space-Age Sound Artist, my picture book biography of Mexican musician and stereo sound pioneer Juan Garcia Esquivel, is officially a book—in two languages! The gorgeous, whimsical illustrations are by award-winning artist Duncan Tonatiuh, who used his signature style based on ancient Mexican artwork. So fun, right?! Duncan and I are thrilled that Esquivel! has been chosen as a Junior Library Guild Selection, which means it will make its way to hundreds of school and public libraries across the country. 

Publication date is September 6, 2016—can’t wait!
