A beautiful collection of bilingual poems and stories from Mexico, paired with paintings by Mexican artists.

“Remember, the tree is older than you are and you might find stories in its branches.”

So begins this wondrous collection of poems and stories from Mexico that invites us to imagine a car as sweet as strawberry ice cream, skin that kisses air and breeze-waving hair, a rabbit with little ears, a frog that runs instead of hops, and taxis filled with ghosts. Richly colored paintings interspersed throughout express not just the meaning of the words, but the magic within them.
