SATURDAY MARKET by Patricia Grossman

SATURDAY MARKET

Age Range: 5 - 9

KIRKUS REVIEW

 A trip to the weekly open-air market at Oaxaca, Mexico, with stops at 11 fictional vendors, male and female, young and old, who have brought chiles, rebozos, huaraches, good luck charms, parrots, flowers, and clay figurines to sell. Each is described in a brief paragraph and a double-page acrylic painting in intense hues of blue, magenta, orange, and brown. The serene, strong-featured faces--like that of a cheated customer who is returning a mute rooster--are riveting. (Picture book. 5-9)
