Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1–4—In Cuba, Millo Castro Zaldarriaga longs to play her drums for all to hear, but on her island only boys are allowed to perform with drums. She perseveres and continues to play and to dream. Eventually, she is invited to join her sister's all-girls band. Her father will not permit her to perform with them, though he allows her to be taught. She continues to practice and dream of a time when she can perform. Finally, she is able to perform in public, and she convinces those who listen that girls, too, can play drums. Adriana Sananes's musical voice invites listeners to dream along. Lovely music, drumbeats, and sound effects accompany the entire tale. The audio production includes a second track with page turns, and a historical note is included in the final track. VERDICT Inspired by a true story, this is a wonderful addition to any collection. ["Engle's spare, rhythmic text gets at the heart of the struggle to achieve a dream": SLJ 1/15 starred review of the Houghton Harcourt book.]—Elizabeth Elsbree, Krug Elementary School, Aurora, IL --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

About the Author

Margarita Engle is the Cuban-American author of many verse books, including the Newbery Honor winner The Surrender Tree, the PEN USA Award winner The Lightning Dreamer, and the verse memoir Enchanted Air, which has won many awards, including the inaugural Walter Dean Myers Award Honor and the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award. Her books have also received multiple Pura Belpre Awards and Honors, Americas Awards, Jane Addams Awards and Honors, and more.

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.
