From Publisher's Weekly: Manning’s familiar character and alter ego Willie Juan is now the age of a grandfather, and he and his wife Ana let the little children come unto them in their home in the Mexican village of Hopi. Ana makes sopapillas, Willie Juan offers the children a simple lesson: you are always smack-dab in the middle of Abba’s (God’s) love. Manning offers a characteristic message of reassurance that will speak to many who are no longer children. Tadgell’s illustrations make that message even friendlier; her color paintings spill across spreads and are filled with attention-grabbing detail, smiling children, and irresistible animals: burros, hummingbirds, and very friendly dogs. Fans of Manning (The Ragamuffin Gospel) will like his first children’s book, which captures his core themes. But readers need not know his work for adults to enjoy his essentially simple message for children of all ages. Ages 4-up.
