"...a girl worries that her grandfather’s spirit will get lost on the Day of the Dead, but her mother promises that he will find his way back, just like the monarch butterflies that return every year. The first-person narrative’s warmth is echoed in Loretta Lopez’s marigold-hued paintings." -- School Library Journal

"...the vibrant illustrations with colorful borders are what really convey the spirit of the celebration." -- The Horn Book Guide
