This is the most delightful story ever, and should be given as a birthday gift to readers of all ages! It helps a lot if you have read Morales' counting book featuring Senor Calavera, Just A Minute. And it's best if you read the counting book first, because it makes this tale even more delightful. Yuyi Morales is a true original, and an amazing artist and storyteller. I recommend this book to everyone, but particularly artists, poets, storytellers, anyone with an interest in Mexico and Day of the Dead traditions, and, of course, children.
