Festival of the Bones / El Festival de las Calaveras

The Book for the Day of the Dead

By (author) Luis San Vicente, Translated by Bobby Byrd, Afterword by Benjamin Alire Saenz

<p>Mexico’s Day of the Dead fascinates U.S readers, whether for its joyful celebration of an unusual tradition or because it simply feels like home. San Vicente lets children join the celebration as they watch the skeletons rock, rattle, and roll those long old bones as they get ready for the biggest event of their social calendar. A short and fun essay, directed toward young readers, will explain this important Mexican holiday.</p><p>The works of Mexico City artist <B>Luis San Vicente </B>have been exhibited in Mexico, Venezuela, Europe, and the United States. He has won UNESCO’s prestigious NOMA Encouragement Concours Prize for Illustration, and UNESCO honored his work (1997, 1998, and 1999) in their prestigious Youth and Children’s Catalog of Illustrations.</p>
