My Pal, Victor / Mi amigo, Victor is the winner of the ALA's (American Library Association) 2004 Schneider Family Award. The award honors an author and illustrator for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for child and adolescent audiences.
My Pal, Victor / Mi amigo,Victor was also selected for inclusion on the 2004 New York Suggested Reading ListFrom the Inside Flap:
Why do we choose the friends we do? Dominic knows. He explains just how special his pal Victor really is. After all, Victor tells heart-booming ghost stories, claps the loudest at Dominic’s baseball games, and performs a fabulous floating frog stroke. Two young boys experience a spirited, carefree friendship that transcends one boy’s disability.
Sweetland’s traditional illustrative style and full-spectrum use of his colored pencil palette on soft tissue paper creates an interesting effect that evokes the everyday charm and warmth that the story portrays.
"...It’s such a gentle treatment of the disability, that it’s quite incidental to the story that will appeal to kids ages four to eight... It’s an admirable book that deserves a place in any child’s library." —San Antonio Woman Magazine
