Praise For Funny Bones: Posada and His Day of the Dead Calaveras

"Tonatiuh further marks himself as a major nonfiction talent with this artistically beautiful and factually accessible offering that effectively blends artistic and political content for young readers."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Playful but informative, this picture book offers a fascinating introduction to the artist and his work."

— Booklist

"The beautifully expressive Day of the Dead–inspired illustrations on heavy paper pages sport borders of bones, grinning skeletons, and Tonatiuh’s signature figures shown in profile, influenced by the ancient Mexican art of his ancestors... A stunning work, with great possibilities for lesson plans or tie-ins with Day of the Dead."
