The Best Mariachi In The World


Everyone in Gustavo’s family is in a mariachi band. Everyone except Gustavo, that is. They all play violins, trumpets and guitars. 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. (Reading level: Ages 4 - 8)

"Gustavo wants to be in the family mariachi band, but he can't play the violin, trumpet or guitar. He feels left out and unskilled. Many young readers will relate to Gustavo's feelings and to his yearning for a unique talent. The vivid illustrations show the boy, accompanied by his canine buddy, visiting the desert near his home in the early mornings. Gustavo finds the cacti and the sky's black bowl of stars so beautiful that he just has to sing - and in so doing, recognizes what he can best contribute to the band." Washington Parent
