The tale of two giraffes--one English-speaking and one Spanish-speaking--who overcome the language barrier to forge a friendship.

She has illustrated four previous books for children, including Maria Had a Little Llama, a Pura Belpre Honor Book. As a child, she loved reading books and making a mess creating pictures. She's delighted to still be doing both. andillustrations.com
