In this character and plot rich story we meet many unforgettable characters who fill up,Salvadore Silvia'/s world. Tthe adopted son of a Mexican
American father who happens to be gay, he has a best friend Sam, a feisty girl with
attitude, a thightfu loving grandmother and a friend in need, Fito. But all the characters are
In need in this book in the way that we are all in need, of self understanding, companionship,
love, families. This is a book that looks at how to live life, face grief, find self awareness
understand love. Sound ambitious, yes......and memorable. Edie Ching (14 and uo)
Lester eagerly leaves the Children's home to go with his new adoptive parents Daddy Albert and Daddy Rich and pet Winka. He is happy in his new home except at bedtime, when the new quiet is unsettling. His parents are patient up to a point, but don't know how to solve the problem. Winka does. I appreciate that this book starts on the very first day of Lester's new life, that the illustrations seem fluid, there are no straight lines here, the colors are warm ao there is a coziness that permeates and let's us know that everything will work out just fine.
