A calavera literaria is a picture of the dead with a short piece of writing explaining how this person, or possibly animal, had died.
My calavera literaria tells about the death of Brandon, the main character in a story we recently finished reading. In the story, Brandon is left home alone and breaks pretty much every rule that his parents had put into place. He didn't die in the actual book, but I decided to play around with it just a little bit. His death comes to him when his parents have arrived home and find out what had happened. Rather than giving him a typical punishment, his parents decided to throw him into the fireplace.
