Anthony is very happy with his mami and her partner, Leslie, but he feels ashamed when kids at school make fun of Leslie¿s appearance and must learn to value the good things in his life over the opinions of others. Rigoberto Gonzalez addresses a common message (¿don¿t worry about what others think¿) from a child¿s point-of-view, providing young readers with a character they can relate to and a lesson they can appreciate. The focus on what Antonio is thinking and feeling, and how this affects his other interests, makes this story particularly accessible to early and intermediate elementary-aged children. Cecilia Alvarez¿s illustrations are unique, stylized, and full of color, flowing around and through the text while supporting it. Recommended for any picture book collection, in school or public libraries.
