Description Un Barrilete / Barrilete de Elisa Amado:

In Guatemala, there is a village called Santiago Sacatepequez. It is a very small but famous place because once a year, on the day of the Day of the Dead, the people of Santiago fly some of the biggest kites in the world. As large as seven meters (twenty-three feet) wide, they fill the sky over the cemetery with brilliant colors.
Juan and his brothers always helped their grandfather build the kite for the Day of the Dead. But their grandfather has recently died, and the boys must carry on the tradition on their own. This beautifully photographed book shows us the village of Santiago and tells us Juan's story as he gathers the materials, builds the kite and, finally, flies it with this help of his friends. Elisa Amado is a Guatemalan-born author and translator. Her books have been on the Americas Award Commended List and on USBBY's Outstanding International Books List. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.
Joya Hairs, who lived in Guatemala for thirty years, is a renowned photographer. She visited Santiago Sacatepequez many times to visit the kite makers. This book was photographed in the 1970s, before the civil war that resulted in the deaths of many Mayans. She lives in St. Ann's, Jamaica.
