My Papi Has a Motorcycle - Cover
My Papi Has a Motorcycle
Isabel Quintero, Penguin Random House 2019
A young girl's loving father comes home from working building houses, and takes her on a ride about town on his fast, wonderful motorcycle. The town, the people they see, the shops, the animals, are all beautifully illustrated, celebrating a strong, working class, Latinx community. Conversations in Spanish float over the characters (as in a comic book) although the narrative of the book is in English. Such fun! Such joy.
