“Cuentes” paints a vivid picture of the people and rich cultures of the Spanish-speaking world with colorful tales from the Caribbean, South America and the Bronx! From the silly antics of the Puerto Rican anti-hero "Juan Bobo" to the mysterious dealings and powers of the Orishas in a suite of Afro-Cuban stories, these tales are filled with memorable characters, fantastic plots and positive messages for all. Mr. Gonzalez is a cultural ambassador for the U.S. State Department and is the proud recipient of the International Performing Arts for Youth Lifetime Achievement Award for Sustained Excellence. “With speech, sound, and above all, inspired imagination, Mr. Gonzalez has the gift of creating magical worlds and drawing his audience into them." The New York Times
