As Mr. Moundshroud takes the children of our story around the world and through time, he wraps up their travels in the beautiful and colorful Mexico during their Day of the Dead festivities, transported there on a kite made from old paper posters. Symbolic, really, if you think about how the four elements are working into the alters during Dia de los Muertos and the children travel throughout time by different means, although start and end with the kite. Our kite is represented by the papel picado on the tree. The festivities and bright colors are represented through the marigolds, inviting our loved ones by their “scent”.
