Three Pockets Full
A story of love, family, and tradition
Illustrated by Begoña Fernández Corbalán
Beto won't wear a guayabera to the wedding. Nope! Nunca! Not going to happen!
With help from his dog Lupe, Beto tries everything to rid himself of the traditional Mexican wedding shirt. But after each attempt the shirt reappears, along with notes from Mami. She insists that Beto attend the wedding, and wear the shirt, because – after all – it's her wedding!
He has to accept her remarriage, and the guayabera, which is part of his heritage. In the end, Beto’s pockets are full, and so is his heart.
