Book Review #1169
Dear Primo: A Letter to My Cousin by Duncan Tonatiuh
Rating: one star (out of four)
The story was interesting and I liked the back and forth between the two cultures: it did a good job of showing the similarities. What I didn't like about this book were the illustrations. I just could not stand them. The mouths and heads were always at an angle and I did not like the white toenails on every single person. It grossed me out. I'm not sure why I had such an adverse reaction to the illustrations, but I thought they were a little disturbing. I wouldn't recommend.
