Snapshots from the Wedding, illustrated by Stephanie Garcia. Text: Gary Soto j E SOTMaya, the flower girl, is busy snapping pictures at this lively Mexican American wedding. She captures the groom with his arm in a cast due to a softball accident, the bride with gifts of money pinned to her dress, the mariachis with their instruments, and the younger guests playing in their dress-up clothes. Ingenious in her execution, Stephanie Garcia has created a series of three- dimensional tableaux created with sculpy clay and found objects, such as olives, potato chips, and ribbons, placed against a delicate background of pink and white lace.
