|About the Book|
I am not yet done reading my big haul of Genaro R. Gojo Cruzs childrens books. However, this seems to be my favorite: the best so far.It is multi-layered, with surprising revelation, enough emotion that can make you want to find some cart-dwellers on the street and you want to donate some food or paints if not to hug them tightly and tell them not to lose hope. That there is still future for them only if they believe they can. The story is that bittersweet: the story of two brothers who live in their blue cart because they are orphan and homeless and the only thing that they have is that wooden cart.The illustrations are done like that of a quilt. It appears homey which is an irony to the homeless boys. It is colorful which is an irony to the bleak and sad flight that they have.It is just a well-thought and well-conceptualized book. Two thumbs up!Well done with this one, Genaro R. Gojo Cruz!
