Everyone in Gustavo s family is in a mariachi band. Everyone except Gustavo, that is. They all play violíns, trompetas and guitarrones. 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? Illustrator Dani Jones uses bright, warm colors to show the hot desert landscape. She also incorporates the styles of art and patterns from the Southwestern area to help illustrate the story. Her bold, graphic style combined with comic interpretation portrays Gustavo s full range of emotions as he pursues his mariachi dream. This is the English only version. The book is also available in Spanish only and bilingual editions.
