Kort biografi
[from Sergio Saves the Game! dust jacket]
Edel Rodriguez was born in Havana, Cuba. He left for America on a boat with his parents and sister when he was eight years old. After they arrived, Edel's extended family came to pick them up, and his cousin brought him the first black-and-white soccer ball he'd ever seen. In Cuba, he only played with plain ones!

Since then, Edel has grown up and illustrated five picture books, including the first Sergio book, Sergio Makes a Splash!, which he also wrote. His Web site is www.edelrodriguez.com. Sergio's Web site is www.sergiothepenguin.com.

An engaging memoir of Edel Rodriguez's childhood under Fidel Castro's dictatorship in Cuba and his parents' decision to risk everything by fleeing to the United States as part of the Mariel boatlift in 1980 when he was nine years old.

The closing chapters of the book pivot to Rodriguez's editorial cartooning and activism against the increasingly autocratic Donald Trump, a man who reminds him too much of Castro with all the scapegoating, hate-mongering, and big lies.

It's a bit wordy for a graphic novel, but Rodriguez's striking art easily offsets any overlarge blocks of text.

(Best of 2023 Project: I'm reading all the graphic novels that made it onto NPR's Books We Love 2023: Favorite Comics and Graphic Novels and the Publishers Weekly 2023 Graphic Novel Critics Poll lists. This book made it onto both.)

I loved this story, the art work was a bit outdated to me but I believe that my bilingual students will enjoy reading about the first latina judge

Loved learning more about one of our impactful supreme court justices. I found myself resorting to the english a bit more because I really wanted to learn more of the details instead of focusing on the language. But I think this book could lead into great discussion about more of our country's leaders and government systems at a basic level. I also thought the author made it very understandable and connectable for many young students.
