Carmela Full of Wishes

Audiobook
An Instant New York Times Bestseller!
In Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson's first collaboration since the Newbery Medal- and Caldecott Honor-winning Last Stop on Market Street comes a poignant and timely new book that's sure to be an instant classic: now adapted for audio, with narration by the author

When Carmela wakes up on her birthday, her wish has already come true—she's finally old enough to join her big brother as he does the family errands. Together, they travel through their neighborhood, past the crowded bus stop, the fenced-off repair shop, and the panadería, until they arrive at the Laundromat, where Carmela finds a lone dandelion growing in the pavement. But before she can blow its white fluff away, her brother tells her she has to make a wish. If only she can think of just the right wish to make . . .
With lyrical, stirring text and evocative narration, Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson have delivered a moving ode to family, to dreamers, and to finding hope in the most unexpected places.
