La divina Catrina / Oh, Divine Catrina

2020

by Aracely De Alvarado and Claudia Navarro

"The Mexican skeleton Catrina has been invited to a Day of the Dead dance, and she's searching for just the right outfit to wear. She pulls her Aunt María's dress from a dusty chest, but it has a stain! There's a skirt made of fine cloth, but it looks like a dusty old drape. Purple shoes that don't fit, a pair of pants that are too short and a blouse missing a button-what will she wear? Finally, she finds a dress that's perfect; in fact, it's divine! With fancy necklaces, lavish earrings, rusty rings and bracelets galore, Catrina will be the envy of all at the ball! Dare we say, she'll be dressed to kill! This bilingual picture book told in verse familiarizes children with the Mexican Catrina, an iconic figure representing death known to many through Day of the Dead celebrations. Claudia Navarro's richly textured, playful illustrations will enthrall kids ages 4-8 and inspire their creativity in fashioning just the right costume for their own party." -- publisher
