8-12 Young adult


Mexikid: A Graphic Memoir

Pedro Martín has grown up hearing stories about his abuelito—his legendary crime-fighting grandfather who was once a part of the Mexican Revolution. But that doesn’t mean Pedro is excited at the news that abuelito is coming to live with their family.

After all, Pedro has eight very noisy brothers and sisters and the house is crowded enough! Still, Pedro piles into the Winnebago with his family for a road trip to Mexico to bring abuelito home, and what follows is the trip of a lifetime, one filled with laughs and heartache. Along the way, Pedro finally connects with his abuelito and learns what it means to grow up and find his grito.

‘The graphic novel was definitely invented for important human stories like this. A story from the heart spilled out onto the page in every possible detail; a fascinating cultural insight wrapped up in a stunning visual tale’ Chris Mould, artist
