Tito Puente, Mambo King = Tito Puente, Rey Del Mambo

By Monica Brown, 1969- author

In this vibrant bilingual picture book biography of musician Tito Puente, readers will dance along to the beat of this mambo king's life.

From Spanish Harlem to the Grammy Awards—and all the beats in between—this is the true life story of a boy whose passion for music turned him into the "King of Mambo."

Award-winning author-illustrator duo Monica Brown and Rafael López bring the remarkable story of this talented legend to life in this Pura Belpré Honor Book. Supports the Common Core State Standards.
