Editorial Reviews

Carolyn Phelan
Writer-photographer Ancona takes children to a Mexican village to meet Tio Rico, an old man who makes beautiful pinatas, puppets, and masks for parties and festivals. Exceptionally clear and well composed, the full-color photographs bring the village, the people, and the craft of pinata-making sharply into focus. On each page, the text appears in English, then in Spanish. Clearly written in both languages, the dual English/Spanish text provides a good bridge for children learning either as a second language, and also makes the book accessible to those who know one or the other. Not just a how-to manual, the book has a narrative strand, following Tio Rico as he buys the materials for his crafts, makes them, sells them, and finally, attends a party where the children break open a pinata. A delightful introduction to the subject and a memorable glimpse of one Mexican village and its people.
