Description

Meet Carmen She LOVES the spotlight and applause. She's an actress, a singer, a dancer--a one-girl sensacion She exhausts her parents with her nightly performances and completely overshadows Eduardo, her adoring little brother. But when Eduardo shows his big sister how much he loves her in a way even Carmen can't ignore, will Carmen realize that the stage is big enough for two?

Exuberant illustrations by Lorena Alvarez Gomez offer the perfect complement to Anika Denise's warm, Spanish-sprinkled text in this celebration of theater, family, and imagination.
