Under The Mambo Moon
illustrated by Fabricio VandenBroeck
On summer nights Marisol helps out in Papi's music store. As customers come and go, they share memories of the Latin music and dance of their various homelands, expressed in a dazzling array of poetry. The diversity of Latin American music is brought to life in poems that swivel, sway, and sizzle with the rhythms of merengue, vallenatos, salsa, and samba.
Back matter includes a map, author's note, and further information about the musical heritage of Latin America.
