Discover our first Spanish title!

«Un pato en Nueva York», the Spanish version of the award-winning storybook-music CD «A Duck in New York City» by Connie Kaldor, illustrated by Fil & Julie, comes out this Spring. Contributors include translator Yanitzia Canetti and Uruguayan-born singer Ines Canepa. As an appetizer, may we suggest “Quiero tomates”!

The title story-song is about a little duck from the prairie who has a big dream: making it to New York City and doing his ducky dance on Broadway. It turns out to be an adventurous journey that appears bound for failure, until he meets up with a truck driver named Big Betty. She points him in the right direction and gives him that little nudge he needs to tackle the Big Apple. Additional songs feature alligators that waltz at mid­night, little girls who sing off-key to get tomatoes thrown at them, and opera-singing slugs that sneak out at night to do the boogie-woogie.

La historia-canción que da título al libro es sobre un patito de la pradera que tiene un gran sueño - ir a la cuidad de Nueva York  y hacer su baile de patito en Broadway. Su viaje aventurero parece condenado al fracaso, hasta que conoce a una camionera llamada Gran Betty. Ella le señala la dirección correcta y le da el empujoncito que necesita para afrontar la Gran Manzana. Canciones adicionales presentan a caimanes que bailan el vals a la medianoche, niñas que cantan fuera de tono para que les arrojen tomates y babosas que cantan opera y salen a hurtadillas en la noche para bailar el boogie-woogie.
