A poignant and uplifting tale of hope and resilience for fans of Last Stop on Market Street. A Spanish edition, El atrapasuenos, is also available for purchase.

Some people dream of perfect waves, fancy castles, or piloting a plane. Others dream of someone to laugh and play with all day long. Some just dream of having a meal for the next day.

And little Miguel? As he and Abuelito work in the hot Oaxacan sun, selling cold coconuts and macrame dream catchers to earn a few coins, Miguel has only one simple wish-to have his parents by his side. But how can he keep the faith when the truth is that dreams don’t always come to pass?

Marcelo Verdad’s poignant tale of hope and resilience shows how living in the here and now can be a journey every bit as beautiful as a dream.

Marcelo Verdad is an author and illustrator from Mexico and the creator of The Worst Teddy Ever, which received a Blue Ribbon from The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books. He graduated from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena and now dedicates his time to his students at an art academy in Los Angeles. Marcelo dreams of aliens, spaceships, perfect waves, and Oaxacan beaches. He enjoys chocolate milk and living in the present, and he hopes to grow up one day to be just like Miguelito. He invites you to visit him at or on Instagram @marceloverdad.
