6.  Duncan Tonatiuh
His first book, "Dear Primo: A Letter to My Cousin", was judged as one of the best books for juvenile readers in the 2010 Kirkus reviews. His next book, "Diego Rivera: His World and Ours", received the American Library Association’s Pura Belpré Award. "Separate is Never Equal", his new book to be published this year, has already raised expectations that it will be equally well-received. Even though his books are written for children, the themes presented, such as immigration and social injustice, are universal. Duncan is fast becoming a literary star, and not just in the United States.

Immigration injustice?  I am an American citizen and if I do anything 'ILLEGAL' I will be arrested and prosecuted.  So what part of 'ILLEGAL' is it that you people don't understand?
