Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Today's puzzle is a 9x9 themed grid by Nancy Serrano-Wu. "Translation for Abuelita" is a themeless construction, but with a little twist. Don't let the first clue fool you -- you won't be finding the usual crossword suspects in these crosses!

Nancy says: "The title of this puzzle is a play on Richard Blanco's poem, 'Translation for Mamá.' While my grandmother didn't do crosswords, she was a wordsearch fiend who used puzzles to learn English. Thanks Lil AVC X team for providing a platform for this crossword!"

Headed to your inbox next week: midis from roster members Darby and Nijah.

Thanks for your support!

Your friends at Lil AVC X
