Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match /Marisol McDonald no combina

By Monica Brown, Sara Palacios (Illustrator)

Bright and vivacious Marisol, a young Peruvian-Scottish-American girl, loves peanut butter and jelly burritos and speaks both English and Spanish. Unfortunately, her teacher and classmates do not appreciate Marisol's mashing of cultures. Using mixed media techniques, Palacios' illustrations exude child appeal and biculturalism, allowing astute visual readers to identify the blending of cultures.
