Thanks for visiting my site! You've come to right place if you're looking for new friends. As my favorite dicho says, "los amigos mejores son libros," which means "books are your best friends." I truly believe this. Whenever I need company, I open a book and there they are—new friends, old friends, friends I love to hate, and friends I love to love.
Would you like to make some new friends, too? If so, take a minute to visit my books page. You can also browse my site to see my schedule for upcoming events, contact me for a school visit, or get information for class projects.
In the meantime . . . Abacadabra, alakazam, hocus pocus, presto, shazam! Let the magic begin by learning about my latest book, Nothing Up My Sleeve.
Inspired by Pixar Animation Studios' latest film, Coco, this middle grade novel retells the story of Miguel’s daring adventure, and features exciting new scenes about his family.
Disney*Pixar's Coco is the celebration of a lifetime, where the discovery of a generations-old mystery leads to a most extraordinary and surprising family reunion. Directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (Toy Story 3), Disney*Pixar's Coco opens in U.S. theaters November 22, 2017.
"López weaves magic tricks . . . and healthy doses of humor into an upbeat coming-of-age story."
"A clever reveal highlights this appealing, Latino cast."
"Nothing Up My Sleeve gets five magic wands for its gutsy blend of contemporary issues and captivating magic tricks!"
—Crystal Allen, author of The Magnificent Maya Tibbs
