This was a book we got out of the library for my toddler. It is apparently a semi-autobiographical award-winning story by Sonia Manzano (who plays 'Maria' in Sesame Street) and has been turned into a musical.The story, narrated by seven year old Iris, is about an event that happened a long time ago when she was six, and her family decided to go for a picnic to the Enchanted State Park lake. Somehow, this turns into an expedition for the whole community, for which everyone packs just about everything. They all set off, have adventures along the way, and finally reach the lake - where they get a rude shock, and have to find a solution.The characters are vivid and true to life, especially for a short children's story (don't we all have mums who pack enough food for a week when we're only going for a day trip?), and have wonderful nicknames - such as her sister, Shorty the Fortune-teller, who can tell the future by rolling her eyes (with typical tween-age exasperation) and El Exigente (the demanding / exacting one) the dog, who is very good at sleeping. The book is beautifully illustrated (pen and watercolour), conveying the sense of the bustling multicultural Bronx neighbourhood. There's a great sense of warmth and community spirit in this gentle tale of a girl and her dog and the wonderful day that everyone has.
