SIGNED hardcover first edition - A gorgeous book, written and illustrated by this award-winning writer and artist, and winner of the 2019 Pura Belpre Illustrator Award. This tells Morales's own story - "In 1994, she left her home in Xalapa, Mexico and came to the US with her infant son. She left behind nearly everything she owned, but she didn't come empty-handed. She brought her strength, her work, her passion, her hopes and dreams and her stories. . . Yuyi and her son Kelly's passage was not easy, and Yuyi spoke no English whatsoever at the time. But together, they found an unexpected, unbelievable place: the public library. There, book by book, they untangled the language of this strange new land, and learned to make their home within it" - as well as that of all the dreamers, the immigrants who come to the US hoping to find a home there. SIGNED on the title page and dated in the year of publication. Large format, unpaginated. ISBN: 978-0823440559.
