Description
Inspired by the innovative folk carvings of Manuel Jiménez, an artist from Oaxaca, Mexico, this book for readers up to 9 tells how young Mateo had been taught by his father to carve as his people had done for hundreds of years. But Mateo keeps dreaming of magnificent goats as pink as bougainvillea with cactus-green speckles, jackrabbits in orange capes with red and white flames, and cats the color of eggplants with corn-yellow spots. On his own, Mateo practices his new animals, until they seem to come to life in his hands. But will his father approve of these strange new carvings? New Mexico artist Amy Córdova fills her painted pictures with patterns of bright color.
