Love Those Awards #3

A Perfect Season for Dreaming / Un tiempo perfecto para soñar

with illustrations from Esau Andrade Valencia

A Perfect Season for Dreaming got lots of awards and a big shining starred review from Publisher's Weekly: "Sáenz's haunting work is part short story, part fable. Andrade Valencia gives these visions an odd and wonderful dignity; his folk art illustrations lie somewhere between Frida Kahlo and Grant Wood.
