In Mexico’s Oaxacan valley, one artisan envisions "cats purple as eggplants, jackrabbits cloaked in orange capes." He carves these creatures out of wood in an accolade to a region that is the center of a vibrant folk art tradition.

"Inspired by the life of renowned Oaxacan woodcarver Manuel Jimenez, newcomer Cohn and Cordova tell of Mateo, a young woodcarver who bravely breaks with a generations-old artistic tradition…Mateo dreams of carving life-size animals, with surfaces that tingle with vibrant, improbable colors and surreal patterns…When Mateo ultimately produces a glorious wooden menagerie including a quetzal with majestic feathers he wins over not only Papa, but the entire village, and a new way of carving is born." — Publishers Weekly
