Summary, etc.:
On May 27, 1937, over four hundred children boarded a ship called the Mexique and sailed for Morelia, Mexico, fleeing the violence of the Spanish Civil War. This would just be a short stay, they thought. They'd be home in a few months. But the war dragged on and the children stayed, waiting and wondering, in Mexico. When the war finally ended, a dictator ruled Spain. Home was an even more dangerous than before. This moving book invites readers onto the Mexique with these child refugees, many of whom never returned to Spain. Poignant and poetically told, Mexique opens important conversations about hope, resilience, and the lives of displaced people in the past and today.
