Publisher Comments:

I am three years old

I am so strong

I am so smart

Look at what I own!

In this bilingual (Spanish/English) very early reader, Little Lalo receives inspiration from the famous Mexican lotería game. Since Lalo is the King of Things and three years old besides, he plays the cards and counts as his possessions the sun, the moon, a lion, a fish, a clown, a train, the crown on his head. Each card in Lalo’s kingdom has its own page, illustrated with a playful brightly colored woodcut.

Born in Tacámbaro, Michoacán, Artemio Rodriguez is a woodcut artist known for his prints in Dagoberto Gilb’s Woodcuts of Women. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

Synopsis:

Three-year-old Lalo imagines his kingdom in a deck of Mexican lotería cards.
