Lights, Camera, CARMEN!
(Abrams Books for Young Readers, September 11, 2018)
by Anika Denise
illustrated by Lorena Alvarez Gómez
In the vein of Eloise, Olivia, and Fancy Nancy, Carmen is a little girl with a BIG personality. She loves the spotlight and fame that comes with being an actress, and she only grudgingly shares attention with her adoring little brother, Eduardo – especially when the prize is a starring role in a commercial.
Carmen and her family speak a mix of English and Spanish, inspired the author’s loving exchanges with her father as a little girl.
