Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4Although David has great soccer practices, in a game he chokes at all the important moments. He decides that he is a terrible player and never wants to play again. Meanwhile, in Mexico, his cousin's team has made it to the big tournament, and he wants David to come and visit. While there, he is recruited to play on Miguel's team and, encouraged by his grandfather's spirit, he scores an important goal. The plot centers on the family's celebration of the Day of the Dead. The story moves along briskly and the cultural information concerning the Day of the Dead is nicely interwoven into it. However, this book is more difficult than other readers in the series. Trivas's colorful illustrations are effective in capturing Mexican culture and festivities. George Ancona Pablo Remembers (Lothrop, 1993) is a more straightforward presentation of the holiday. Fans and players of the sport are sure to enjoy Soccer Cousins.Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
