I generally don’t seek out books based on TV shows, but this one doesn’t feel as much like a direct copy because of the original illustrations which I found really beautiful and fun. But I might also just be totally biased because I love the show! 😁 It’s my favorite kids show out there right now and I may or may not have encouraged my kids to watch it so I could see it as well 😏. They ended up getting hooked and loving it themselves. 💃🏽
Although it’s set in a fantasy world, it is directly inspired by various Hispanic countries and cultures. I love that aspect of it and seeing all the music, architecture, clothes, customs, etc that are based on actual cultures.
Are there any kids shows you secretly love? While we're spilling secrets, I'll throw out there that I love the new Tangled show as well 😄.
You can find this book and the toy figures on my Cinco de Mayo blog post (link to the post in my profile).
