Bocón!, a fable filled with humor and mysticism and song, tells the story of twelve-year-old Miguel who flees a repressive military regime in Central America for Los Angeles. A natural storyteller and irrepressible big mouth (or "bocón"), Miguel loses his voice when his parents are taken and begins a metaphorical journey north to the City of Angels. Miguel's story is relevant to immigrant children from all parts of the world...and to any child who is learning the many meanings of finding one's own "voice."
