A celebration of Celia Cruz, the legendary Queen of Salsa
A little girl carries her favorite record with her to an impromptu neighborhood dance party and calls out for her favorite singer. “Oye, Celia!” she shouts. And as she dances she tells Celia what she hears in her singing—loss, passion, sadness, happiness, history, and more.
Oye, Celia! is a beautiful, rhythmic tribute to the Queen of Salsa—Celia Cruz. The personal telling, in a blend of English and Spanish, and the marvelously expressive illustrations will make this book irresistible to Celia’s many fans and even to those who aren’t familiar with her music.
Oye, Celia! is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
