Smoky Night

Written by Eve Bunting and Illustrated by David Diaz

This book describes in an eloquent and matter-of-fact manner what was happening during the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Bold and powerful illustrations depict the scene as a mother and son witness and try to understand the events that are taking place just below their window.
