characters Marisol McDonald and the Clash Bash ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Marisol is turning eight and it’s time to plan a birthday party that will be fabulous marvelous and divine She also hopes that Abuelita who lives far away in Peru will be able to come to the celebrationAt the party store Marisol Nothing seems right for soccer pirate princess unicorn loving Marisol Finally she comes up with just the right idea and when her friends arrive for her Clash Bash birthday a big surprise awaits But in a heartwarming turn of events Marisol gets the biggest surprise of all a visit from Abuelita via computerIn this delightful story told. I can safely say that I have never seen a red haired latina girl before but I am very much looking forward to seeing her again In some ways she reminds me of Fancy Nancy especially in her rather uniue dressing choices I loved the way Marisol used her imagination to create a birthday party that satisfied not only her own interests but those of her friends too Seriously the book made me laugh And the sweet surprise at the end was the perfect touch I found it refreshing to read a contemporary story about a multiracial child who is comfortable in her own skin The author's note about what lead her to write the story reinforces the current movement toward greater diversity in children's books so that other children like Marisol and like the author can read books about themselves Highly recommended

Kirkus reviewThe confident exuberant bicultural and proud Marisol McDonald is back in this follow up to Brown’s introduction to the character Marisol McDonald Doesn’t MatchMarisol McDonald no combina 2011Marisol struggles to pick a theme for her upcoming eighth birthday party How can she choose among princesses and unicorns and soccer when she loves them all As her mom gently reminds her maybe she doesn’t have to What Marisol really hopes for her birthday is to see her abuela who lives in Peru and with whom she rarely visits The story’s contemporary solution to this problem will resonate with many families who are living across great distances The “uniue different and one of a kind” Marisol McDonald continues to stand out as a character She is self assured and caring without straying into didacticism Her bicultural identity is a point of pride that imbues her personality Pura Belpré Honor recipient Palacios’ mixed media illustrations once again visually express Marisol’s originality Bits of cut paper add unexpected texture and the warm tones convey the closeness in Marisol’s family Domínguez’s Spanish translation is also noteworthy; its emphasis on capturing the spirit of the language over literal words makes this book eually joyful in both English and Spanish

Marisol McDonald and the Clash BashIn English and Spanish author Monica Brown and illustrator Sara Palacios once again bring the irrepressible Marisol McDonald to life With her bright red hair golden brown skin mismatched outfits and endearing individuality this free spirited Peruvian Scottish American girl is headed straight into the hearts of young readers everywhe. This was a nice book about being your own person and celebrating differences in others Marisol's party was lovely and it was a nice message for young kids to discussThere was an underlying theme about why Marisol's abuela couldn't come to visit for the party Marisol saves her allowance and sends it for her to buy a ticket Instead she buys a computer to do video calls This was another sweet story about building relationships with people far awayMy one complaint While I understand that obtaining a visa is a real problem with which many people deal I found it difficult to explain to my 4 year olds It was a clunky heavy handed addition to an otherwise sweet picture book
