Art from the children's book FIESTA
The soft-edged full-color illustrations done in pencils, pastels, and watercolors have a subtle folkloric quality. The colorful artwork complements the simplicity and childlike appeal of this delightful picture book.
-Selene S. Vasquez, New York Public Library
Moreno's pastel, watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations afford an idyllic, soft-lensed view of frolicking children, kindly merchants and such atmospheric elements as mariachis and an open-air market. The pictures also add a story to the counting/vocabulary class: all the objects go into the creation of a piñata, which explodes ("Pau!/ Crack!") in a jubilant party scene at the end. Olé!
