RECIPIENT OF THE PURA BELPRÉ ILLUSTRATOR HONOR

Author-illustrator Carlos Aponte takes listeners on a journey to the heart of Puerto Rico in this enchanting book set in Old San Juan and adapted for audio


"A lively and honest story about filling voids and exploring what defines a family--as well as a love letter to a childhood home."--Horn Book

Carlitos lives in a happy home with his mother, his abuela, and Coco the cat. Life in his hometown is cozy as can be, but the call of the capital city pulls Carlitos across the bay in search of his father. Jolly piragüeros, mischievous cats, and costumed musicians color this tale of love, family, and the true meaning of home.
