Gr 4&11;8&12;A Spanish translation of Telgemeier's Ghosts. Catrina, or Cat for short, comes from a multicultural family&12;she has a white father and a Mexican mother. Cat reluctantly moves with her family to Northern California for the health of her younger sister, Maya, who has cystic fibrosis. In their new town of Bah&7;a de la Luna, the sisters meet Carlos, a neighbor kid who tries to convince them that ghosts exist. Cat is skeptical, but Maya is a believer. When Carlos takes the girls to an old mission, Cat accepts the possibility that the spirits of one's ancestors can, in fact, communicate with the living. Everything culminates at the Day of the Dead festivities, during which Cat learns beyond a doubt that Carlos was right about the ghosts all along. Lombana has done an outstanding work in translating the original English text into Spanish. Spanish speakers will find this an accessible and faithful adaptation of the original and should appreciate the colorful art. The dark side of California's mission's history is overlooked. Pair with Duncan Tonatiuh's Funny Bones for a wider perspective of Day of the Dead. VERDICT A thoughtfully designed, well-translated version of the popular graphic novel.&12;Tim Wadham, Children's Literature Consultant, Puyallup, WA

Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn't happy about leaving her friends for Bahía de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea. As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister's sake -- and her own.
Raina Telgemeier has masterfully created a moving and insightful story about the power of family and friendship.

Catrina y su familia se mudan a la costa norte de California porque la hermana de Catrina está enferma. Una vez en su nuevo hogar, un vecino les cuenta a las chicas un secreto: ¡Hay fantasmas en Bahía de la Luna!
