Product Details


★”The text, sprinkled with Spanish words, is eloquent and funny — and it deftly captures the flavor of a Latino wedding, compete with Mariachi band. Garcia’s singular, deliciously creative artwork…is eye-catching.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)

★”There’s nothing like a wedding, and this book about a wedding is not quite like any other….Maya, the flower girl, is the lens through which the action is seen. All of the fun of a wedding is here: the altar boy with the dirty sneakers under his gown, Maya putting pitted black olives on each of her fingers, the kids whacking each other with balloons….The choice of three dimensional artwork was inspired.” – Booklist (starred review)
