A border is nothing for people who love--and Little Diego loves his grandpa more than anything

Una frontera no es nada para los que se aman: y Dieguito ama a su abuelo m's que nada

Little Diego doesn't get to see his grandfather nearly as much as he'd like. He lives in Texas and his Pap Diego lives in Mexico across the border. One day Little Diego's father gives him a pile of superhero comic books that he had growing up. In those comic books, Little Diego find a way to see his Pap Diego more often. Maybe if he was like the magical superhero, then he could fly off to see his grandfather in Mexico So Little Diego tells his mother that he wants the superhero's costume for his birthday. His parents buy him one, but, of course, Little Diego cannot fly. He's heart-broken. Still, because he had the daring to imagine, a wonderful event occurs and he enjoys a magical birthday anyway.

Each illustration in Pap Diego was built out of terra cotta clay and painted with acrylic paints. This gives the illustrations a 3 dimensional quality which kids will love
