A tender biography filled with struggle and hope, Días de Consuelo by Dave Ortega brings to life the memories of the author’s abuela as they coincide with the storm of events that framed one of the most important uprisings of the twentieth century: The Mexican Revolution.

This graphic novel introduces middle grade through adult readers to the captivating story of Consuelo, her mother Evarista, grandmother Isabel and sister Beatriz as their lives are upended apart by civil war. Días de Consuelo is also the perfect introduction to revolutionary figures like Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata, the series of uprisings that they led to put an end to centuries-old systems of oppression, and the toll that this violence took on daily life.

With its expressive cartooning style, this book celebrates the Mexican-American experience in a way that has yet not been seen in the comics medium.

A History & Nonfiction graphic novel for young adults about childhood, family, grandparents, immigration, migration, religion, and war.
