Description


In this hilarious installment in the Spanish-forward Skeletown series, will Skully and Skelly get up to más or menos mischief?

Fall is in the air in the Día de los Muertos-inspired world of Skeletown!  Skully and Skelly are raking leaves and trekking to school amid the brisk autumn wind, so it's time to cozy up with a big sweater that Abuela just knitted—that is, until their cat Lulu grabs the yarn and begins unraveling it, leading the crew on a wild chase through the busy streets of Skeletown, in this exciting story told using only two words!

With dynamic, neon art that pops off the pages, a completely unique approach to storytelling, and a wildly appealing (but not scary!) cast of calavera characters from the fantastical world of Skeletown, here's a rambunctious romp that will inspire giggles with Spanish and English readers alike!

Praise For…


Praise for Skeletown: Sí. ¡No!:

A Chicago Public Library Best Book of 2023


* "The sublime, repeated juxtaposition of Sí and No offers wacky, surprising moments of levity, and it all comes together for a charming ending. A spectacular day in Skeletown." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Good-natured, bustling cartooning reveals lots to laugh about in a friendly concept book that’s overwhelmingly a 'Sí.'" —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An interactive read-aloud story that helps teach children how to build healthy friendships and other life lessons." —School Library Journal

"Prereaders will have fun interpreting the reason behind each sí and no, and the final pages turn the plot toward the importance of collaboration and friendship—and, of course, a little mischief, too." —Booklist

"The text demonstrated a range of meanings for 'sí' and 'no' (the only two words in the book) with black, white, and blood orange images that are jam-packed with friendly skeleton details." —Horn Book
