A Girl Named Rosita: The Story of Rita Moreno: Actor, Singer, Dancer, Trailblazer! - Anika Aldamuy Denise

A Girl Named Rosita: The Story of Rita Moreno: Actor, Singer, Dancer, Trailblazer!


Pura Belpr Honor winner Anika Aldamuy Denise (Planting Stories) and New York Times bestselling illustrator Leo Espinosa (Islandborn) tell the story of Rita Moreno, the Puerto Rican superstar best known for her Oscar-winning performance in the original West Side Story film, in this gorgeous picture book biography.

When young Rosita moved from Puerto Rico to the mainland United States, she didn't know what to expect--but she knew she loved to sing and dance. Working to overcome the language barrier and bullying she experienced in a strange new country, Rita eventually made her way to Hollywood with a dream to be a star. There, she fought to be seen and heard and eventually reached the pinnacle of success, landing her iconic role in West Side Story and, finally, winning her groundbreaking Oscar.

Brought to life by Leo Espinosa's bold and vibrant illustrations and Anika Aldamuy Denise's lyrical text, this gorgeous tribute to the life and career of the first Latinx person to have earned an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award will inspire little dreamers everywhere.

Informative author's note and timeline also included.

A Spanish-language edition is also available.

Praise for Anika Aldamuy Denise:

" Anika's] lyrical text, sprinkled like fairy dust with Spanish words, begs to be read aloud."--New York Times Book Review on Planting Stories
