A young boy with two homelands and a delightful sense of wonder comes to life in Jorge Argueta’s first collection of poems for children. Young Jorgito lives in San Francisco’s Mission District, but he hasn’t forgotten his native El Salvador. He recalls the volcanoes, the tasty cornmeal pupusas, and his grandmother’s stories. As he changes from timid newcomer to seasoned city dweller, Jorgito’s memories and new adventures form a patchwork of dreams the movie in his pillow that is perfectly suited to his new bicultural identity.

Poems in Spanish and English describe the author's boyhood as a refugee from rural El Salvador living in San Francisco's Mission District, where he had to cope with a new language, a new culture, and a very different way of life.
