Hear author Frederick Luis Aldama read excerpts from his newly published picture book, The Adventures of Chupacabra Charlie, and learn more about the artwork from illustrator Chris Escobar!
In their debut picture book, Distinguished University Professor of English Frederick Luis Aldama and Chris Escobar invite young readers along on the adventures of Chupacabra Charlie, a polite, handsome and unusually tall 10-year-old chupacabra yearning for adventure beyond the edge of los Estados Unidos. With magical realism, allegory, and gentle humor, Aldama and Escobar have created a story that will resonate with young and old readers alike as it incorporates folklore into its subtle take on the current humanitarian crisis at the border.
