This story about an imaginative girl and a magical mural is an engaging exploration of Puerto Rico’s cultural traditions as well as an ode to public art and the community it depicts. When Sofi walks through her barrio to the local store, she passes a huge mural with images from Puerto Rico: musicians, dancers, tropical flowers, and her least favorite: a vejigante, a character from carnival that wears a scary mask.
