A Wedding in Chimalistac

Elena Poniatowska

CHILDREN'S BOOK. FONDO DE CULTURA ECONÓMICA, 2008. 28 PAGES.

The gardens of the neighbourhood of Chimalistac, in the south of Mexico City, witness the love of a lemon tree for a Jacaranda. Unfortunately, the Jacaranda is in love with an ash tree and the lemon tree will have to get over his disappointment and find a way to win his beloved and take her to the altar.
This fable is told with images created with a mixture of techniques including acrylics, gel pens and glitter on rough Mexican artisanal paper, portraying panoramic landscapes of Chimalistac. The story and the images are an invitation to rediscover the city. As the illustrator Oswaldo Hernández Garnica says: "We're surrounded by plants but with the monster that is the city and asphalt, we forget what they're called."
