Though written for a young adults audience, this book is interesting also to those older readers interested in literature about the Mexican experience. Some of the stories were later retold in Villasenor's "Wild Steps of Heaven" which is a much more absorbing read for the adult audience. cuicocha, November 24, 2009.

I feel bad writing a negative review without having read the book... but Amazon advertises this as "English and Spanish Edition" and there might be a dozen spanish words sprinkled around. This just isn't what I was looking for at all.

I discovered Walking Stars, reading it with students where I worked, at a San Diego high school. The story of the two boys who went after the evil general, and the true magic of the mother's faith, grabbed me and changed me. And the story of the boy, going up against the power of the bruja, is an amazing gem!
With this book, I caught the fire for Victor Villasenor's stories of his great familia. I immediately sent it to my friend who had just been imprisoned, to help strengthen him.
Walking Stars is just a taste of the power of Villasenor's other books; however, the personal notes and background he includes with each story are essential to visiting his works.

Senor Villasenor is an amazingly gifted author who commits all of his knowledge and wisdom to his works. The first of his works I read was "Burro Genius" and that prompted me to purchase all of his books. They have each offered wisdom, spirituality, humility, creativity and compassion.

I have not had time to read this book yet, but I am looking forward to Christmas break so I have some leisure reading time! Loved Rain of Gold.
Victor E. Villasenor cleverly leads the reader into Mexican and Mexican American history through his own journy and the journy of his family. As a first generation Mexican, Victor Villasenor struggles to find meaning in a world that has been all but welcoming. In his search for meaning he begins with stories/Oral history handed down to him by his mother, that at times seemed surreal. In his quest, he finds himself back in Mexico were many of his family stories originated. It is through this passage he find the magic of perseverance and the ture meaning of healing and pride. Walking Stars is the light inside all of our hearts.
