If the kiddo in your life likes magic of any kind, this one's a win. Elena's father scoffs at her desire to follow in his glassblowing footsteps, because she's a girl. She's not willing to take no for an answer. Her journey to Monterrey to learn the art is filled with enchantment, and her eventual triumph has us saying "See? Told ya so!" In a nice way, of course.
