To the Other Side

Author and illustrator: Erika Meza

As masked siblings cross the border in search of refuge, shadow puppetry collides with symbolic Mexican folk art to portray an emotional landscape of expectations and fears. Bold fusions of cacti and flowers, with womb-like shadow caves and mouse holes, cleverly connect the reader to Meza's powerful words.
