“There’s much to savor here, from the thoughtful exploration of bicultural identity to the good-natured snarky teasing of siblings to pivotal moments of growth amid guileless kidhood. It’s a tightrope balancing act of antic humor and genuine pathos, and Martín pulls it off with tremendous flair.”
BooklistStarred Review

Mexikid is poignant, laugh-out-loud funny, and masterfully weaves road trip misadventures with history and family legacies. This is one of those books that kids will pass to their friends as soon as they have finished it.”
—Victoria Jamieson, creator of National Book Award Finalist When Stars Are Scattered

Written by Pedro Martín
Published by PRH Grupo Editorial

Así que no sabe qué pensar cuando su padre anuncia que toda la familia (¡11 personas!) se apretará dentro del Winnebago para manejar 2,000 millas hasta México con una misión: traer a su misterioso abuelito de la era de la Revolución Mexicana a vivir con ellos.

Esta divertidísima memoria gráfica es la historia de un Mexikid en busca de su grito… en el viaje más importante de su vida.
