More About Gary Soto

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Born in Fresno, California to Mexican American parents, Gary Soto learned the hard work ethic through his share of chores, including mowing lawns, picking grapes, painting house numbers on street curbs, and washing cars. His hard work paid off at California State University at Fresno, from which he graduated with an English degree, and later at the University of California at Irvine, where he earned a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing.

Gary Soto is an acclaimed poet, essayist, and fiction writer. The awards for this multi-talented author are many, ranging from the U.S. Award for International Poetry Forum in 1977 for his first published book of poetry, The Elements of San Joaquin, to a Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award in 1985 for Living Up the Street, his first published work of prose recollections. His short story collection Baseball in April, was named an American Library Association's Best Book for Young Adults. In 1993 Gary Soto received the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Children's Video for Pool Party, and in 1995 he was nominated for a National Book Award.

His other credits include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the California Arts Council. Gary Soto is also one of the youngest poets to appear in the Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry. Several of his books have been translated into French, Spanish and Italian.

Too Many Tamales was named a Booklist Books for Youth Editors' Choices of 1993. Hazel Rochman of Booklist said, "Gary Soto is an accomplished poet and adult writer, and his children's stories are widely popular. His first entry into the picture book genre is a joyful success."

When he is not writing, Mr. Soto serves as a volunteer English teacher at his church. He also enjoys eating at new restaurants, which he does often with his wife, Carolyn, and their daughter Mariko. Other members of the Soto household include their two cats, Corky and Sharkie. The Soto family resides in Berkeley, California.

My 9 year old daughter & I BOTH loved this book!  Sep 22, 2005
My daughter does NOT like to read. However, she does LOVE to dance! We bought the book with the doll. She didn't pick up the book until she had to do a report for school. I had already read the book one day, and encouraged her to read it for her report. She gave in, because she really had to choice but to read something for her report. Well, once she picked it up, she did not want to put it down!!! It was a book she could relate to, since she and the main character both love to dance. It even prompted her to look up Ballet Folklorico on the computer, since that is Marisol's favorite kind of dance. I only wish this was a series, like the other books from American Girl.
Not very good  May 19, 2005
This was not too good of a book . I thought it was very very boring . And the ending is terrible . But if really want to buy it I think the age range should be 8-11 . If you do buy this book I hope you have more fun reading it then I did .
P.S You might want to try the book ''lindsy'' by the brand name americangirl instead .
Pleasant book for young girls  Jan 18, 2005
I am an adult who bought the new American Girl doll, Marisol. Since the book comes with the doll, I thought I'd read it just for fun. I thought it was a pleasant, well-written book. I think it would especially appeal to girls ages 8-12 who like to dance. But I think this is also a good book for any child who is forced to move from the home and neighborhood they love and is having a hard time adjusting. Marisol is a good kid (possibly unrealistically so) who handles her family's move without much whining or complaining to her parents. She soon learns that the move may not be all bad. The new neighborhood is definitely quieter, and right next door is a girl in her exact grade who also likes to dance. The only real worry is that there is no dance studio in her new town, Des Plaines, IL, and Marisol lives to dance. When Marisol meets her soon-to-be ex-upstairs neighbor's daughter, a dance teacher, she tries to convince her to move to Des Plaines to open a dance studio. Marisol is a very persistent girl who doesn't take 'no' for an answer. I like the fact that the book has many Spanish words sprinkled throughout, and there's a small glossary in the back so readers can look up those words. The book has a slightly educational feel to it, but kids won't even notice it. They'll just enjoy the story.
