This beautiful jacketed picture book pairs Newbery Winner Matt de la Peña and Pixar artist Ana Ramírez with the celebrated Disney and Pixar film, Coco. La Música exists in many places —in the twang of a guitar, in the beat of a drum, even in the whistling wind and the morning bird's song. She brings color and life wherever she goes, connecting people to a grand harmony. And in the town of Santa Cecilia, she is everywhere. But when La Música discovers a boy with longing in his heart and no music in his home, she vows to help him find his passion.
