Marisol McDonald, an individualistic Peruvian-Scottish-American girl, throws a "soccer-player-pirate-princess-unicorn" birthday party, but her abuelita cannot get a visa to attend. In a sweet, satisfying twist, technology comes to the rescue. Highlighting Marisol's mixed background, the English text includes some Spanish words and the Spanish includes some English. The cut-paper, ink, and marker illustrations brim with vitality and detail. Glos.
Kirkus Reviews
The confident, exuberant, bicultural-and-proud Marisol McDonald is back in this follow-up to Brown's introduction to the character, Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match/Marisol McDonald no combina (2011). Marisol struggles to pick a theme for her upcoming eighth birthday party. How can she choose among princesses and unicorns and soccer when she loves them all? As her mom gently reminds her, maybe she doesn't have to! What Marisol really hopes for her birthday is to see her abuela, who lives in Peru and with whom she rarely visits. The story's contemporary solution to this problem will resonate with many families who are living across great distances. The "unique, different and one-of-a-kind" Marisol McDonald continues to stand out as a character. She is self-assured and caring, without straying into didacticism. Her bicultural identity is a point of pride that imbues her personality. Pura Belpré Honor recipient Palacios' mixed-media illustrations once again visually express Marisol's originality. Bits of cut paper add unexpected texture, and the warm tones convey the closeness in Marisol's family. Domínguez's Spanish translation is also noteworthy; its emphasis on capturing the spirit of the language over literal words makes this book equally joyful in both English and Spanish. A broadly appealing bilingual and bicultural celebration of being oneself and the love of family. (author's note, bilingual glossary) (Picture book. 6-8)

Marisol is turning eight, and it's time to plan a birthday party that will be fabulous, marvelous, and divine. She also hopes that Abuelita, who lives far away in Peru, will be able to come to the celebration. At the party store, Marisol can't decide what kind of party to have. Nothing seems right for soccer, pirate, princess, unicorn-loving Marisol. Finally she comes up with just the right idea, and when her friends arrive for her Clash Bash birthday, a big surprise awaits. But in a heartwarming turn of events, Marisol gets the biggest surprise of all--a visit from Abuelita via computer. In this delightful story told in English and Spanish, author Monica Brown and illustrator Sara Palacios once again bring the irrepressible Marisol McDonald to life. With her bright red hair, golden brown skin, mismatched outfits, and endearing individuality, this free-spirited Peruvian-Scottish-American girl is headed straight into the hearts of young readers everywhere.
