Reviews

2017 Carnegie Medal winner * "A beautiful account of a young girl's bravery and her important contribution toward gender equality in the creative arts." --Kirkus, starred review * "The heroine's tenacity in the face of naysayers will inspire all dreamers, and the illustrator's smile-inducing cameo on the last page emphasizes the universality of Millo's story...For those looking for more nonfiction titles about female musical powerhouses." --School Library Journal, starred review "The text and illustrations work together beautifully here, creating a story that will imbue readers with inspiration and a yearning to make music of their own." --Booklist "A valuable addition to the growing library of stories about strong Latina women." --Publishers Weekly "With its emphasis on artistry and visual metaphor, this title bears a strong kinship with Yuyi Morales' Viva Frida, but it also brings an accessibility that young viewers (and teachers) will appreciate." --Bulletin "Engle's poetic text takes its cues from Zaldarriaga's chosen instrument, its rhythm at times steadily assured and at others loose and improvisational...[E]very spread is full of motion, with some of the illustrations requiring a ninety-degree turn, as if the book itself has got to dance." --Horn Book Magazine "Engle's poetic narrative combined with Lopez's warmly ethereal folk-art illustrations to evoke a nighttime tropical dreamscape." --New York Times Book Review
