Chris' Fish Place
Chris' Fish Place rated it 2 years ago
The relationship between the sisters was well done. There could have been some more about the Mexian culture - to seems to be confined to food and the Day of the Dead. Still it was a good story about confronting fear and death

This is a cute graphic novel by the same author who brought us Sisters, Smile, and Drama. The students in our Elementary school library love Telgemeier's books. This book brings up some serious issues including childhood cystic fibrosis, death, and fear. But the tone of the story isn't too serious...

Borrowed it from the library to read with Little One.

Oh, where to even begin with this. Many may have heard of it. Telgemeier is a darling, and she's not without a huge amount of talent. The illustration was fantabulous, and it's well-paced, exciting. The problem is, as far as diversity goes--and this graphic novel tries to cash in on several tiers ...

I was uncertain about this book as I was reading it. I'm not Mexican. I don't celebrate Día de los Muertos. But flags did go up when Halloween and Día de los Muertos seemed to converge in the book. This review sums up the problems with the book (there's several other reviews out there that all sa...

I read this book after reading an article on the lack of diversity of main characters in children's books. While the article focused mostly on younger kids books, I feel like this one falls in the spectrum. Touching on Day of the Dead, ofrendas, cystic fibrosis, moving to a new city, and a tiny bi...
