Happy book birthday to Migrant by José Manuel Mateo, illustrated by Javier Martínez Pedro! 
In Migrant, a Mexican boy tells of his journey to the U.S. with his family. The narrative is accompanied by one long, beautifully vivid illustration reminis­cent of pre-Hispanic codices, packaged as an accordion-style foldout frieze.
Read the an incredible interview with author.
