Carmela Full of Wishes

Carmela Full of Wishes

★ A Publishers Weekly Most Anticipated Children’s Book

★ An Amazon Most Anticipated Fall 2018 Book

★ “The award-winning team behind Last Stop on Market Street portrays Carmela’s Spanish-speaking community as a vibrant place of possibility, and Robinson’s acrylic-and-cutout spreads introduce readers to street vendors, workers in the fields, and sweeping views of the sea. Sensitively conceived and exuberantly executed, Carmela’s story shines.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Full of rich details, sharp and restrained writing, and acrylic paintings that look textured enough to rise off the page . . . Another near-perfect slice of life from a duo that has found a way to spotlight underrepresented children without forgetting that they are children first.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Carmela’s journey of wishing, waiting, and wanting resonates on many levels; an important addition to bookshelves everywhere.”
School Library Journal, starred review
