Praise For Starring Carmen!

"Gómez's art seems to leap off the page...For caregivers of extremely extroverted kids, Carmen's ambitions will feel very familiar; for kid readers, Carmen and Eduardo's very fun activities might inspire some musical productions at home."

— Kirkus

"A wonderful celebration of creativity and imagination that may inspire readers to engage in their own dramatic productions. What fun!"

— School Library Journal
