Calavera Abecedario: A Day Of The Dead Alphabet Book

Jeanette Winter, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt P $16 (48p) ISBN 978-0-15-205110-5
Jeanette Winter (illustrator of Tony Johnston's Day of the Dead) offers another visual extravaganza set against the Mexican festival in Calavera Abecedario: A Day of the Dead Alphabet Book. The neon bordered artwork begins with Don Pedro, his sons and grandsons constructing the calaveras (skeletons) for the town's celebration. When they take them to market, the calaveras come alive, assuming such roles as ""candelera"" (candlemaker) and ""vaquero"" (cowboy). (Sept.) .
