Illustration Friday: Brave

Mayte and the Bogeyman illustration by Christina Rodriguez.

This week’s Illustration Friday submission comes from the bilingual children’s picture book, Mayte and the Bogeyman / Mayte y el Cuco. Don Apricio’s intimidating and sour attitude leads Mayte and Pepito to suspect that he’s really “The Bogeyman” in disguise and has a kidnapped child in his burlap sack. Armed with only their bravery, wits, and friendship, they plan to confront him and save the “child” before he becomes dinner!

Have a great weekend, everyone!  The temperatures are supposed to reach a balmy 38 degrees here in Minnesota, so I’m going to enjoy some (mostly) snow-free walks with my dog.

This is fantastic, Christina! Just ripe with intrigue, suspicion, and suspense! :)
