Debbi Chocolate & David Diaz

Autographed by David Diaz

Join a young boy as he explores his vibrant neighborhood. The city shimmers with life--at once a party, a waltz, and a heartbeat. El Barrio is his sister preparing for her "quinceanera," his grandfather singing about the past, and his cousins' stories from other lands. The city is alive with the rhythms of the street.

Told in lyrical language and through bold, colorful illustrations, this celebration of Hispanic culture and urban life is sure to fire children's curiosity about where they live and what they can discover in their own neighborhoods."

The Pot that Juan Built - Autographed
Andrews-Goebel, Nancy

Autographed by illustrator David Diaz

Juan Quezada is the premier potter in Mexico. With local materials and the primitive methods of the Casas Grandes people -- including using human hair to make brushes and cow manure to feed the flames that fire his pots -- Juan creates stunning pots in the traditional style. Each is a work of art unlike any other. The text is written in the form of "The House That Jack Built" and accompanied by a comprehensive afterword with photos and information about Juan's technique as well as a history of Mata Ortiz, the northern Mexican village where Juan began and continues to work. This celebratory story tells how Juan's pioneering work has transformed Mata Ortiz from an impoverished village into a prosperous community of world-renowned artists.
