Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Young Pascual, while hawking shirts on the roadside in Guatemala, dreams of owning a camera. Not any camera, but one just like the funny looking cardboard disposable he's seen around a tourist lady's neck. How he scrimps and saves to get one is only the start of this little tale with an odd twist in its ending. Because the pictures Pascual gets are what he's dreamed of, and more. As Pascual himself would say, "Magic!" The narrative is very slightly choppy in places, but this is, on the whole, a very readable little tale.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Young Pascual is enchanted by the antics of the howler monkeys in the rainforest of his native Guatemala. He wants to photograph them but believes a camera is out of reach-until he meets a female tourist with a disposable camera. After saving his money, he purchases one only to be so frightened by the monkeys he hopes to photograph that he drops the camera and runs. By the time he returns and recovers it, all the film is shot. However, with the help of the howlers, the boy's pictures exceed his most elevated hopes. Too wordy for most primary students to read themselves, this story is nonetheless briskly told and would read aloud well. The bright watercolor illustrations will hold children's attention through the narrative stretches. Pascual is an engaging hero, and information about life in Central America is inferred from the text rather than stated. Similar to Johanna Hurwitz's New Shoes for Silvia (Morrow, 1993), which also deals with a South American child who receives something from the North, this is a reasonable addition to collections seeking ethnic and cultural balance.-Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
