    " Interesting book about Celia Cruz, for younger children. The paintings are superb and very representative of Cuban artwork. However, the interplay between Chambers’ fairy tale and Cruz’s actual life may be confusing for some readers. The book ends by describing Cruz as a princess in a kingdom. "
