 About the Book 

A Boy who loves his GrandmotherIgnacio Antonio “Gordo” Hernandez-Macias is not quite twelve years old and lives with his Abuelita Rita, actually his great grandmother, and the word abuelita is often translated at Granny, who is pushing hard at 100More A Boy who loves his GrandmotherIgnacio Antonio “Gordo” Hernandez-Macias is not quite twelve years old and lives with his Abuelita Rita, actually his great grandmother, and the word abuelita is often translated at Granny, who is pushing hard at 100 years old and on top of that she is almost blind. Gordo’s parents had moved to Chicago shortly after his birth to look for work. Chicago is a large city in the United States. They left and have not bothered to come back, so he shares a little rundown house with his grandmother. When Abuelita gets sick, Gordo must find a way to fulfill her final wishes.Gordo is very much overweight – thus the nickname “Gordo” meaning fat in Spanish. Being fat is not considered all that bad a thing in Mexico as it is in other parts of the world. It merely means that the person ate well. A sweet story with a setting in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Gordo is an enterprising lad and while his Abuela is off doing her job as a beggar for pesos on the cobblestone streets of their colonia, Gordo helps gringos around town with little chores and errands, mostly to support his growing food habit.An authentic story of Mexico from a growing boy’s perspectiveGet his book for $2.99 while you can. Regular price is $4.99This book is intended for middle grade readers and older but adults love it too.What happens to Gordo will warm your heart!Author’s Note: You may know me from reading my mystery/action adventure novels, so this story may seem to be a bit of a departure to you. I spend part of my year in San Miguel, one of the most beautiful towns in the world, and have personally observed my Ritas and my Gordos and can certainly relate to the Gringo in the story. My plan is to have this story, which is illustrated by Carlos of Spain, to be bilingual with English on one page followed by Spanish on the next, great for English as a second language teachers.
