Inspired by Mexican culture and perfect for fans of the hit movies Coco and The Nightmare Before Christmas, Skeletina and the In-Between World is the first book in a series that combines kooky characters and a spooky story with important and resonant themes about empathy, bravery, self-esteem, and the enduring power of love.
Meet Skeletina, a fun-loving, fearless little girl who lives in the in-between world with her friends, who include monsters, creatures, ghosts, and more. The upside-down, inside-out, in-between world is where the living go when they are fast asleep and where the dead hang out when they have unfinished business. Visitors to the in-between world are children who come to confront their fears or to see a loved one who has recently left the world of the living. Either way, Skeletina is there to guide them and help children conquer their anxieties.
