Narrator Armanda Duran's friendly style is ideal for this award-winning nonfiction gem. Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913) was a bold political satirist before he created his famous CALAVERAS, humorous skeletons playing guitar, riding bikes, dancing, etc. Duran energetically tells the story of Posada's life and art, accompanied by the sounds of lively Mexican music and rousing sound effects such as bicycle bells and storms. Spanish words and their translations add further local color. In addition to recounting Posada's life story, including his participation in the Mexican Revolution, Duran explains Posada's artistic techniques and adds possible interpretations of his work. Descriptions of the Day of the Dead are presented lightheartedly so as to amuse and not frighten young children. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
