Looking for the Cherries


Looking for the Cherries is a story of persistence and triumph inspired by the late Alberto Mijangos, the beloved and widely collected San Antonio artist, teacher, and longtime promoter of Mexican culture. Authored by Alberto’s wife Kay and illustrated by his daughter Laura, this joyous book recounts important milestones in his life, beginning with his arduous trek from Mexico City as a young man. Told through the eyes of Alberto’s fictitious granddaughter, Frankie, this story is a revelation of love, a salute to one of the most accomplished and sophisticated artists to come out of Texas, and a celebration of Alberto’s wisdom about how to live a positive, meaningful life. Children and book-lovers of all ages can enjoy Looking for the Cherries, a story of family, art, dedication, attention, and wonder that offers encouragement and inspiration to readers.
