From the Publisher:
In the night sky the moon hangs low and the fireflies flicker. A young girl in a small town explores the haunted house of the revolutionary Juan Sebastian, discovers music on the cantina's jukebox, and is chided by her mother for mischievousness. In her first book for children, award-winning poet and writer Lucha Corpi recalls her childhood in Jaltipan, Mexico. Most of all, the author remembers her grandmother's stories and their message about growing up: like Juan Sebastian, each person has a destiny to follow. This book is a Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List selection. "A wonderful evocation of the early experiences and family love that give a child both roots and wings." - Kirkus Reviews

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Although the characters' faces are somewhat poorly articulated, Reisberg's framed and bordered acrylic paintings are naively composed and vividly colored, with a fanciful design and an unblended palette. This sentimental story has some elements, both textual and visual, that young readers will find involving." - Janice M. Del Negro October 1997
