The Pinata Maker/El pinatero

In Ejutla de Crespo, a village in southern Mexico, seventy-seven-year-old Don Ricardo makes piņatas for all the festive occasions. Tio Rico, as the children call him, is clearly valued among children and adults alike in the community. Color photographs and text show how Tio Rico makes both traditional and unusual piņatas for parties and holiday celebrations. A brief authors's note at the end of this bilingual book provides suggestions for making simple piņatas.
