Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Miguel, who wants to be a mariachi singer, goes to different lengths to face his fears. He can't play the trumpet, the violin, or guitar like everyone else in his family. Not finding the support he needs, he finally wanders for answers in the desert. Here the story finds its turning point. The beauty of the sound of nature, and the singing of the owl and the coyote give Miguel the strength to become a real mariachi. Moved by this magical moment, he becomes a great cantante, singer. This book sprinkles Spanish words into the English text. The target words are in red and only refer to the vocabulary related to the mariachi's world. Yet the story and illustrations stand on their own and could be used in cultural programs or for parents to experiment and learn some Spanish vocabulary and cultural traditions. The wonderful gouache, oil, and colored-pencil illustrations show the landscape of the Southwestern desert. The bold graphic style and the colorful and whimsical characters create an upbeat feeling throughout.–Irania Macias Patterson, Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, NC
