Synopsis: Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. This beautifully illustrated Little Golden Book retells all the excitement and adventure of Disney/Pixar’s Coco. It’s perfect for children ages 2 to 5.
Thoughts: I really liked this book. Super cute, vibrant and it seems to show all the symbols of Dia de los Muertos well. I am certain this would be a great book to read aloud to your children or classroom about the movie. Beautifully illustrated and heart warming.
