Free Book Friday: Luis Paints the World

Happy Free Book Friday! First, congratulations to Twila Claycomb, who’s won Growing Green. Twila, send your address to and we’ll get your books in the mail.

Today we’re giving away a copy of Luis Paints the World, written by Terry Farish and illustrated by Oliver Dominguez.

Luis wishes Nico wasn’t leaving for the Army. To show Nico he doesn’t need to go, Luis begins a mural on the alleyway wall. Their house, the river, the Parque de las Ardillas—it’s the world, all right there. Won’t Nico miss Mami’s sweet flan? What about their baseball games in the street? 
 But as Luis awaits his brother’s return from duty, his own world expands as well, through swooping paint and the help of their bustling Dominican neighborhood. 
If you’d like to win Luis Paints the World, please leave a comment on this post that includes your first and last name, or tweet this line:
