In the spotlight...
Everyone in Gustavo's family is in a mariachi band. Everyone except Gustavo, that is. They all play violÃns, 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?
We are thrilled to share with you another PBJ spotlight! A warm welcome to the very talented Dani Jones, who is the illustrator of The Best Mariachi In the World, written by J.D Smith and published with Raven Tree Press.
Dani will be spending the week with us answering questions about her experience on this delightful book so be sure to come back tomorrow when we get things started.
And that's not all, Dani has graciously offered a signed copy of Mariachi to a lucky winner. Thanks, Dani! All you have to do is answer this multiple choice question:
"In what Mexican state did mariachi music originate?"
