About the Author
Adriana Sananes is an award-winning bilingual New York City stage actress, director, and narrator. A recipient of a theatre fellowship from The Princess Grace Foundation, she has recorded more than 150 audiobooks, including Spanish versions of Polar Bear, Polar Bear, To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman, and Pulitzer Prize winner Enrique’s Journey, for which she won a Audie for Best Spanish Narration.
Rafael López, a four-time recipient of the Pura Belpre Illustrator Medal, grew up in Mexico City where he was immersed in the rich cultural heritage and native color of street life. To build community, López developed a mural style that works like a large scale paint by numbers. He has worked with hundreds of children, families, museums and community members to create murals that often reclaim blighted neighborhoods around the nation. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Just so you know, I am not a big fan of feminist pushing books. I don't like books that advance women at the expense of men or the attacking of men (or visa versa for that matter). But the great news is that this book does none of those things. The girl pursues her drum dream respectfully. She only takes lessons once her father approves and only performs once her teacher approves. At the end of the book, it also says both boys and girls should be allowed to pursue their dreams. Therefore, I feel this book did feminism beautifully right and in a wonderfully balanced way. I have no qualms reading this book to my drum playing boys.
