A Movie in My Pillow / Una película en mi almohada

By School Library Journal

The lines capture the pleasures and difficulties of living in each country, but mostly, they capture the sense of being a child in the city. . . . Gómez’s rich and bright paintings fill every spread with the same joy and literal humor that she used in Juan Felipe Herrera’s The Upside Down Boy/ El niño de cabeza. The style . . . combines with the “handwritten” typeface to make the book feel immediate and comfortable. . . an appealing choice to fill the need for books about Salvadoreños, as well as an excellent addition to any poetry collection.
