Praise For…


STARRED REVIEW: “Multiple Pura Belpré Medal and Honor- awarded Tonatiuh (Diego Rivera, 2011) channels his interest in the Mixtec codex format to create a superb modern odyssey, stupendously illustrated in his signature contemporary adaptation of Pre-Columbian art forms, presented on accordion pages in a handsome slip-box.”

— Booklist

“Remarkable…The artwork is deliberately evocative of Mesoamerican logography, with figures and perspectives that feel at once bizarre and totally familiar.”

— Vulture

“By focusing on the narrative of one immigrant worker, Tonatiuh breaks the mammoth issues of immigration and workers rights into an easy-to-swallow bite, allowing the reader to easily engage with an often intimidating topic. The personal is again political. Highly recommended.”

— Kirkus Reviews

Undocumented... is an all-too-real discussion about fair pay and the hostility U.S. citizens often display toward undocumented immigrants."

— Shelf Awareness

"…a gorgeous, timely, and necessary offering about the daily plight of undocumented workers in the United States.”

— Library Journal

“With its explicit political messages, this book is unique in the picture book canon.”

— NBC online

“From the beginning, the format of this book shows its uniqueness with the codex form used by Mixteco.”

— The News & Observer
