This is an entry for the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival. The book is "Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night," a 2011 Newbery Honor Book written by Joyce Sidman and illustrated by Rick Allen.
This video was made by Soledad, Marlen, and Maricela with help from Kathy, Yulissa, and Gianna. Special thanks to Yvette Leigh of the Lozano branch of the Chicago Public Library and Jennifer O'Neil of Casa Juan Diego, both in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, for facilitating this project.
