Ahí, Donde Bailan Las Luciérnagas

Children's Books Press, 1997 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
1 Review
In the night sky the moon hangs low and the fireflies flicker. A young girl in a small town explores the haunted house of the revolutionary Juan Sebastian, discovers music on the cantina's jukebox, and is chided by her mother for mischievousness.

In her first book for children, Lucha Corpi recalls her childhood in Jaltipan, Mexico. Most of all, the author remembers her grandmother's stories and their message about growing up: like Juan Sebastian, each person has a destiny to follow.
