En este clásico moderno, galardonado con la medalla Caldecott, un niño y su madre se ven obligados a dejar su apartamento por la seguridad de un albergue durante una noche de disturbios.
 In this Spanish language edition of a modern classic, Eve Bunting’s heartfelt story and David Diaz’s dramatic illustrations create a compelling child’s-eye view of urban violence. A young boy and his mother are forced to flee their apartment during a night of rioting in Los Angeles. Fires and looting force neighbors—who have always avoided one another—to come together in the face of danger and concern for their missing pets. David Diaz was awarded the Caldecott Medal for his bold acrylic paint and photo-collage illustrations.

Eve Bunting was the beloved, award-winning author of more than two hundred and fifty books for young people, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz, The Wall, Fly Away Home, and Train to Somewhere.

David Diaz has illustrated numerous award-winning books for children, including Smoky Night by Eve Bunting, for which he was awarded the Caldecott Medal; The Wanderer by Sharon Creech, which received a Newbery Honor; and Diego: Bigger Than Life by Carmen T. Bernier-Grand, a Pura Belpré Honor Award winner. An illustrator and graphic designer for more than twenty-five years, he is also a painter and an accomplished ceramic artist. Mr. Diaz lives in Carlsbad, California.

Without becoming cluttered or gimmicky, these pictures manage to capture a calamitous atmosphere that finally calms. . . . Both author and artist have managed to portray a politically charged event without pretense or preaching.”  —The Bulletin   "Monumental.”  —The New York Times Book Review   "Visually exciting.”  —Publishers Weekly   "A memorable, thought-provoking book.”  —The Horn Book   "Outstandingly handsome . . . an excellent vehicle for discussion.”  —Kirkus Reviews   "[A] powerful story.”  —School Library Journal   "A remarkable book.”  —The Hungry Mind Review   "Bunting takes a serious subject . . . and makes it understandable for children.”  —Instructor
