We got this really cool animalito when we were in Mexico!! He is an alebrije, which is basically a whimsical monsterlike animal. He’s almost a foot tall and is made of paper mache. I was originally drawn to him thinking that he would be a great example for a paper mache project to do with my students some time in the future. I got lots of stares throughout the various airports as he was my carry-on all the way back to Honduras.
