Picture biography, 40 pages. Jose Guadalupe Posada, a lithographer and engraver by trade, created calavera drawings every Dia de Muertos for 24 years. Published in 2015 by Abrams Books for Young Readers. Recipient of the Robert F. Sibert Medal, a Pura Belpre Honor Book, and a NYTimes Best Illustrated Children's Book Award.
Humor and Hard Work
We we can deduce Posada had a significant sense of humor and was a hard-worker: it is estimated he produced more than 20,000 images, many of which were either political satire or visual jests to accompany calavera poems.
Resource to Learn More
Unfortunately, Funny Bones appears to be the only juvenile book available about Posada. The bibliography included in the book offers quite a few titles in Spanish for young adults or adults.
There is also a list at the back of the book of museum and universities where you can view Posada's work. The best collection to view online is at the Art Institute of Chicago with more than 250 broadsides available.
