Look Inside



Acclaimed poet Pat Mora  (Borders, Chants, Communion, and other works) has joined with artist Francisco X. Mora to create a charming and elegant book whose rhymes and drawings will delight not only children aged 3 to 7, but adults (and animal-lovers) as well. Pat Mora’s whimsical poem, presented bilingually with a Spanish translation by Alba Nora Martínez, tells of birds, armadillos, and other creatures who join together in a kitchen one “orange night” to make merry beneath the desert moon. Exhilarated by the strains of a lizard mariachi band, these hungry creatures will gobble anything! Only the most delicious of hullabaloos can satisfy their appetites tonight. And only Francisco Mora’s captivating, colorful illustrations could catch them at play on the page.
