Benito Juarez, chapter 2

Here's the boys' work from our 2nd chapter of our Benito Juarez sage story, where his sister, Josefa, leaves for Oaxaca, and Benito eventually follows after her. Above is J's story drawing of Benito talking with Jose Fernandez, who was traveling with some mule traders. He had just come from Oaxaca and saw Josefa there. (I particularly love the mule drivers and mules, and Benito's sheep.) Below is Zoo Boy's drawing (an overhead perspective) of Benito running away to Oaxaca.

J's full chapter summary above, Zoo Boy's abbreviated version below.

While reading the 3rd chapter today, Zoo Boy commented, "I hope Benito goes on to have a happy life."
