Sofia Valdez, Future Prez
Andrea Beaty, David Roberts
Mr B's review
Sofia is punchy and idealistic and she always comes through for the people she cares about. This time, she’s taking on City Hall! Mount Trashmore, the local landfill, is a dangerous place and Sofia is determined to campaign to have it turned into a big green park; only the adults in charge won’t take her seriously because she’s just a kid… but Sofia never let that stop her before! A rhyming picture book masterpiece from the creators of Iggy Peck, Architect.
An instant #1 New York Times bestseller!
The newest picture book from the creators of Iggy Peck, Architect; Rosie Revere, Engineer; and Ada Twist, Scientist stars Sofia Valdez, a community leader who stands up for what she believes in!
Every morning, Abuelo walks Sofia to school . . . until one day, when Abuelo hurts his ankle at a local landfill and he can no longer do so. Sofia (aka Sofi) misses her Abuelo and wonders what she can do about the dangerous Mount Trashmore. Then she gets an idea-the town can turn the slimy mess into a park! She brainstorms and plans and finally works up the courage to go to City Hall-only to be told by a clerk that she can’t build a park because she’s just a kid! Sofia is down but not out, and she sets out to prove what one kid can do.
