Up until Daniels father gets arrested, their biggest worry had been how to improve their soccer skills. Now, they are thrust into a situation where they must grapple with the incomprehensible: dictatorship and its inherent abuses. This sensitively realized story touches a nerve and brings home the uncomfortable fact that some children do encounter issues of this magnitude. Here, deft realism is brought to the page by Antonia Skarmetas story and the edgy drawings of Alfonso Ruano, portraying a childs view of a repressive society. The Composition is a winner of the Americas Award for Childrens Literature and the Jane Addams Childrens Book Award.
