Named one of the best children's books of 2008 by Criticas, the one-stop source for reviews of new adult and children's titles for Spanish-language titles. Everyone in Gustavo's family is in a mariachi band . . . Everyone except Gustavo, that is. They all play violines, trompetas and guitarrones. They all make wonderful music in restaurants and at wedding parties. Gustavo would love to join the band, but he can't play any of the instruments. What's a wannabe mariachi to do? Follow Gustavo as he finds his place in the family mariachi band. The book is currently available in English, Spanish and bilingual editions. Beautifully illustrated with bright, vibrant colors, this is a charming tale about finding one's own talent. Gustavo was born to a family of Mariachis, but can't be part of the family band because he can't play any instruments. That is, until the town discovers that he has a great singing voice.
