Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The muy talented Elya (Eight Animals; Cowboy José) can always be counted on for bilingual texts that seamlessly integrate Spanish and English in snappy, beg-to-be-read-aloud rhymes. In her latest, a fea (ugly) toad discovers she has an award-winning set of pipes. 'The music-the música-/ sounded so right./ Their voices-toad voces-/ rang into the night,' writes Elya. 'The singing made Sophie so happy-feliz,/ she felt like a beautiful actress-actriz.' (An opening glossary defines the book's 30 Spanish words.) Sophie is so good, in fact, that she wins a trophy in a singing contest-which finally allows her to come out from behind the shadow of her guapo (good-looking) brother. Argentinian artist Carofoli works in piñata-bright colors and big bold shapes, and she uses brushstrokes in deep greens and yellows to create texture on the frogs' skin. Fine black outlines contrast the long, 'lovely lashes' of Sophie's handsome brother, Vince, with her own 'skimpy and short, not too girly' eyelashes. The upbeat message, that everyone must find his or her own niche, is sure to please youngsters discovering their own strengths. Ages 4-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

As Sophie, a frog, sings about her sorrows, the Toadettes are impressed and ask her to join their group. Seamless verse with Spanish vocabulary and lively illustrations make a story all kids can relate to while they search for their special talents. Full color.
