The Best Tailor in Pinbaue
The first book written and illustrated by Eymard Toledo shows one boy's pluck when his beautiful town is ruined by the arrival of a gray, dusty factory. Uncle Flores is the best tailor in the small river town of Pinbaue in Brazil where he used to make beautiful dresses and colorful costumes for the carnival until the factory tells Uncle Flores they don't need his uniforms anymore. Edinho, his nephew, comes up with an ingenious idea to get his uncle back to work and make everyone in town happier and brighter. Uncle Flores's house became the most popular one in town. In The Best Tailor in Pinbaue a small act of beauty in the midst of environmental degradation reminds young readers of their own agency and of the life-affirming strength of family and community.
