Description
From first-time Mexican author and illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh comes this story for readers 4 to 7 of two cousins, one in America and one in Mexico, and how their daily lives are different yet similar. Spanish words are scattered among the English text, and Tonatiuh's hand-drawn, digitally collaged images are inspired by the ancient, highly stylized art of the Mixtecs and other cultures of Mexico.

"Charlie enjoys a slice of pizza after school, while Carlitos helps his mother make quesadillas. Charlie cools off in an open fire hydrant, while Carlitos jumps into a small rio. The writing is simple yet peppered with imagery that enhances it significantly: 'Skyscrapers are buildings so tall they tickle the clouds' or 'The subway is like a long metal snake and it travels through tunnels underground.' Twenty-seven Spanish words are sprinkled throughout the text, easily understood from the context and explained in a glossary."School Library Journal
