Description: Tun-TUN-dun-TUN! Even though nobody in her Cuban-American neighborhood thinks girls should play the drums, Chavi knows she was born to make just this kind of music. And the whole world is her instrument: she drums on paint cans, sofa arms, even on her mother’s cheeks. Her favorites, however, are the tumbadoras, the conga drums that liven the Caribbean music she and her neighbors love. So, when she’s not picked to play on the school float for the festival on Calle Ocho-—Miami’s Eighth Street—she decides to do something about it!

Mayra L. Dole’s plucky little musician will drum her way into the hearts of all young readers, who will root for her success and will add her to their list of favorite heroines. Adding to the delight and exuberance, Cuban artist Tonel’s wonderfully quirky illustrations capture Calle Ocho, its inhabitants, and celebrations in all their heart-thumping energy and splendor.
