Review
  • PreS-Gr 2 — Marisol McDonald has brown skin, freckles, and hair the color of fire. She pairs polka dots with stripes and eats peanut butter and jelly burritos. She's a Peruvian-Scottish-American who is perfect just the way she is. Why not have a game of soccer-playing pirates or mix cursive with print? That makes sense to Marisol. But others seem to see things differently. When another student issues a matching challenge to Marisol, she has to decide if she will conform simply to show that she can. In this lively bilingual book, Marisol is brought to life in both English and Spanish through Brown's dynamic prose, Palacios's vibrant illustrations, and Dominguez's outstanding translation. This fun book allows readers to meet a wonderful character. Children get a glimpse of what it means to grow up in a biracial family and have other people trying to define what is "normal." The story encourages readers to embrace their uniqueness and be exactly who they are.—Ver Ã3 nica Corral, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC --VerÃ3nica Corral (Reviewed September 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 9, p140)
  • The vivacious Peruvian-Scottish-American protagonist of this bilingual book has brown skin and hair “the color of fire.” Her friends tell her that she “doesn’t match,” because of her appearance and her wardrobe, but when Marisol tones down her style, she realizes that it doesn’t feel right. Palacio’s collage work incorporates newsprint, vibrant patterns, and Peruvian motifs, echoing the message about being true to oneself. Ages 4–8. (Oct.) --Staff (Reviewed September 5, 2011) (Publishers Weekly, vol 258, issue 36, p)
  • (The following is a combined review for MARISOL MCDONALD DOESN&#39 and T MATCH / MARISOL MCDONALD NO COMBINA)/* Starred Review */ A little girl celebrates her multiracial background and pride in her individuality through a creative and non-conformist attitude. Marisol McDonald loves her fire-red hair and her brown, freckled skin, feels artistic pleasure in pairing polka-dotted shirts with striped pants and enjoys eating PB&J burritos. Misunderstood by her peers, she is continually teased for not ever matching until one day, confidence diminished, Marisol decides to conform and arrives at school in the same-colored clothes, chooses pirates over soccer rather than playing both simultaneously and eats a peanut butter/jelly sandwich on mushy bread. Bored and unhappy, Marisol is delighted when her teacher gives her a note that boosts her self-esteem with this very positive message: "the Marisol McDonald that I know is a creative, unique, bilingual, Peruvian-Scottish-American, soccer-playing artist and simply marvelous!" Double-page illustrations in assorted media match Marisol's eclectic style and include everything from childlike crayon-and-pencil drawings to more sophisticated cartoon art that combines paint and newsprint collage. The bilingual, first-person story works well in both English and Spanish despite, as explained in an editor's note, the difficulty of finding the most appropriate Spanish term for the title's English phrase. Marisol's varied, distinctive lifestyle and multiracial family affirms our increasingly blended society and clearly celebrates independent thinking. Brava!
