Description

By: Pedro Martin  


'We are living in a golden age of graphic novels and memoirs, and MEXIKID is one of the best I've ever read' - New York Times

'Beautiful ... An important human story wrapped up in a stunning visual tale' - Chris Mould
____________________

Pedro is a Mexikid, a kid born in America to parents from Mexico: a kid who doesn't quite belong in either place... So he's not sure what to expect when his dad announces that the whole family (all 11 of them!) will be piling into their Winnebago to drive to Mexico with one mission: to bring home their abuelito - their legendary crime-fighting grandfather, who was once part of the Mexican revolution. Allegedly - but their grandfather has a mission of his own and he won't leave Mexico until it's complete.

This deeply personal and hilarious graphic memoir captures an unforgettable journey filled with cousins, comics, heartbreak and family history ... The road trip of a lifetime!
