The team behind the Newbery Medal winner and Caldecott Honor book Last Stop on Market Street and the award-winning New York Times bestseller Carmela Full of Wishes once again delivers a poignant and timely picture book that’s sure to become an instant classic—now in a Spanish-language edition!

Milo is on a long subway ride. To pass the time, he studies the people around him and draws pictures of how he imagines their lives to be. There’s the whiskered man with the crossword puzzle; Milo draws him playing solitaire in a cluttered apartment. There’s the woman in the wedding dress; Milo draws her in a grand cathedral ceremony. And then there’s the boy in the suit; Milo draws him arriving home to a castle. But what if everyone’s life is different from how Milo first imagines it?

From award-winning creators Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson comes this timely and important picture book about how you can’t really know anyone’s story just by looking at them.
