BISA’S CARNAVAL By Joana Pastro Illustrated by Carolina Coroa Scholastic Release Date: Spring 2021. “Trumpets, trombones, tubas and saxophones sing louder, faster, faster, louder! It’s CARNAVAL!” With help from her bisa (great-grandma), a young girl in Brazil prepares for Carnaval: bright costumes, feathers, flowers, and plenty of glitter. But bisa must stay home. As the girl hugs bisa goodbye, the music pulls her in. Excitement is everywhere, on every sight, sound and scent. But… Carnaval isn’t the same without bisa. With the blow of a whistle and lots of love, the girl will make sure BISA’S CARNAVAL is the best one ever!
