Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote: A Migrant's Tale was released earlier this month. First I've gotta say, the artwork is really fantastic. I love mixed media! This is hand drawn then collaged digitally. The colors are stunning.
Now, the subject matter. The book is about Pancho Rabbit, his father left to find work in the north because of the horrible drought... but he doesn't return when he's supposed to. So, Pancho sets out in search of him.
This book is the perfect way to introduce children to the complex issue of immigration and migrants. There are SO MANY strong feelings about the subject. This is a great book, I highly recommend it.
ps There is an author's note, post story, which talks about this subject in greater depth. There is also a glossary where you can find definitions of all Spanish words in the book. Both of which I found very interesting and useful.
