Book Culture & Worldwide Buddies invite adults and little ones to welcome the Day of the Dead through an adventure-packed story time that will have the entire family giggling for days on Saturday, October 20th at 11:30am!

A Marvelous Mexican Misunderstanding follows young Adri as he moves back to Mexico and discovers that everyone is getting ready to celebrate the Day of the Dead. New to the culture, and with the help of his older sister's cheeky behavior, poor Adri embarks on an unfortunate journey of misunderstandings around the holiday and what it actually means.

Let your little ones experience the Day of the Dead, discover Mexico's culture, and laugh your heart out while watching Adri's fears turn into the best day of his life.

A Marvelous Mexican Misunderstanding is the first of a series of picture books from Worldwide Buddies, which are designed to introduce children to different cultures. The story is available on its own, or as part of A Marvelous Mexican Story Box, with additional toys, games and activities that bring Mexico's culture and the celebration to life.

Suitable for children 4+, guaranteed to be loved by the whole family.
