Reviews

"Brown and Lopez collaborate in this energetic bilingual tribute to salsa drummer and band leader extraordinaire. Lopez's pictures convey salsa's rhythmic exuberance via a riotous palette. A vibrant, reverent celebration of the godfather of salsa."--Kirkus Reviews
Brown's bilingual text echoes the rhythms of salsa, mambo, and jazz . Lopez's sizzling acrylics are anything but flat.--Publishers Weekly
"My father was an inspiration to many generations of Latin music fans worldwide. This book is a testament to that. Now his name and likeness will reach a brand new group of young fans who will discover his genius and talent."--Tito Puente Jr.
..".Irresistable...The vibrant imagery hums right off the page, full of high-contrast color and energetic composition, and decorated with swirling, starry embellishments.--Horn Book Magazine
Like so many of Brown's biographies, Tito's story introduces readers to a vibrant Latino figure. Award-winning illustrator L pez brings Tito's story to life in vibrant acrylic salsa reds and oranges, which are splashed behind every shake of Tito's hips and wink of his eyes.--ALA Booklist
