A Star from Kirkus for Not a Monster illustrated by Laura Gonzalez

29 Mar 2023

Kirkus has given a starred review to Not A Monster (Charlesbridge) by Claudia Guadalupe Martinez, illustrated by Laura Gonzalez. The book explores the traits of the axolotl; a water based salamander, the Aztec origin myth about the species, and the way pollution is affecting its natural habitat: the canals of Xochimilco in Mexico City.

Kirkus calls the artwork “sublime and earthy.”

Congratulations Laura!
