Sofi and the Magic, Musical Mural/
Sofi y el mágico mural musical


When Sofi walks through her barrio she always passes a huge mural with images from Puerto Rico: musicians, dancers, tropical flowers, and—her least favorite—a vejigante, a character from the carnival that wears a scary mask. One day Sofi stops in front of the mural. Is one of the dancers inviting her to be his partner? “Suddenly Sofi is in Old San Juan. Surrounded by dancers and musicians Sofi begins to dance and sing with her new friends. But, her pleasure turns to fear when the vejigante shows up and spins her around and around! What does he want from her? How can she get away?
