Lush, luminous, and deeply inspiring…
Corbett debuts with this delightful and imaginative exploration of self, identity, following one’s dreams, and the power of perseverance. The handsome and mighty Cristobal bull is the best; he is highly independent, determined, and driven. Winning one competition after another fills Cristobal with happiness but only temporarily. When Cristobal realizes what he wants, he knows he must work hard to achieve his goal. This is a beautiful exploration of finding one’s identity as well as the place of power in life. Using fun rhyming verse, the smart text details and delights. The pacing is smooth and the tempo remains upbeat as Cristobal sets out to find the elusive contentment. Richardo Galvao’s digital illustrations are full of texture and joy; the dashing Cristobal cuts an undeniably adorable figure. Children will want to revisit this one for both the fun rhyming scheme and pleasing visuals. A must-have for both school and public libraries and children’s bedside shelves.
