Mateo and his father carve juguetes, small wooden animals his
family sells at the fiestas in Oaxaca. But Mateo wants to carve
much larger animals - goats as pink as bougainvillea with
cactus-green speckles, and purple cats with corn-yellow spots. When
he tells his father how he longs to bring these large animals to
life, his father only scowls, but Mateo perseveres. Including an
informative afterword on this vibrant Mexican art form, this
colorful tale inspires readers of all ages to follow their passion.
