Welcome! ~ ¡Bienvenidos!

Summer 2016,

Hola amigos,

I'm overwhelmed with the warm reception of ¡Olinguito, de la A a la Z! Descubriendo el bosque nublado; Olinguito, from A to Z! Unveiling the Cloud Forest. It now counts with 4 starred reviews from major critique journals! In addition it's a Junior Library Guild Selection and it's on ALSC Summer Reading List.

I love to see kids discover the amazing animals and plants showcased in this beautiful book during my school visits. The book's art will be on display as part of the show Turning the Page at the Strathmore Mansion in Maryland until the end of July.
Please join me at any of the OLINGUITO events listed on the calendar.

Brand new Spanish and English paperback versions of the beloved Rafi and Rosi books are now available from Lee & Low Books.

Here is a sampling of the 36 books I've written and/or illustrated:

How Far Do You Love Me? for baby showers or newlyweds

Arrorró mi niño for the mother-to-be and the littlest angels!

Jay and Ben for children 3-6, specially if they like interactive books!

The Storyteller’s Candle for children ages 7-9, specially if they are into history!

Salsa Stories for children ages 9-11, specially if they like to learn about other peoples' traditions and/or cook!

Alicia Afterimage for teens 14-16 and/or those who’ve been touched by the death of a loved one.
