A Day of the Dead Story for Kids, at La Bloga

800pxdiademuertosxochimilcodfmexi_3No tricks, just a treat! La Bloga is featuring "Magic Night, Noche Mágica," a new children's story by René Colato Laínez. You can read this cuento, about Halloween and El Día de los Muertos, in its entirety at the blog.

The author of several bilingual picture books, Laínez hopes the story will be published one day. He begins,

Once a year, I have a double delight.
Two nights in a row, I have tons of fun.
First I have a magic night and then I have una noche mágica.

At this time last year I wrote about Pablo Remembers: The Fiesta of the Day of the Dead, a photo essay for children by George Ancona.
