Celia Cruz, the Queen of Salsa, was not born a princess. She grew up in a poor BARRIO in Havana, where she lived with her family, went to school, and did her chores just like any other girl. But Celia had a voice that moved anyone who heard it . . . So begins this modern day fairy tale about the life of this flashy salsa diva. Michelle Manzo narrates the story and sings with AZÚCAR (sugar)! The production is accompanied by an energetic soundtrack, packed with appropriate sound effects and music that won't let the listener sit still. Julie Maren's illustrations provide a perfect complement to this colorful story. The production also includes a glossary of Spanish terms and a bonus track with the Queen of Salsa herself singing “Quimbara.” J.A.G., L.R.P. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
