Summary Flying over Manhattan Island, turning somersaults in midair. Gliding low to race the sailboats, spreading skirts for sails. Rosalba and her grandmother, her abuela, are taking an extraordinary trip - on Rosalba's imagination. "Tantos pájaros. So many birds." Rosalba says to herself, feeding the birds in the park with Abuela. "What if they picked me up and carried me high above the park? What if I could fly?" And fly she does, calling Abuela up to her and narrating their marvelous journey in English spiced with Spanish phrases. Many of the sights they see remind Abuela of when she first came to this country. Collage illustrations burst with energy and beauty, transforming New York City into the treasure for readers that it is for Rosalba and Abuela. Their adventure is a spirited tribute to the power of love and family pride between a little girl and her grandmother.
