Influencial Hispanics Who Have Ever Lived
"2008 Pura Belpré Honor Book for Illustration"
Can you imagine a shipwrecked sailor living on air and seaweed for eight days? Can you imagine a trail of yellow butterflies fluttering their wings to songs of love? Once, there was a little boy named Gabito who could. Gabriel Garcia Marquez is perhaps one of the most brilliant writers of our time. He is a tremendous figure, enormously talented, and unabashedly admired. This is his story, lovingly told, for children to enjoy. Using the imagery from his novels, Monica Brown traces the novelist's life in this creative nonfiction picture book from his childhood in Colombia to today. This is an inspiring story about an inspiring life, full of imagination and beauty.
Also available from the PERSONAJES DEL MUNDO HISPANICO SERIES in Spanish: Conoce a Miguel de Cervantes, Conoce a Gabriela Mistral, Conoce a Simón Bolivar, Conoce a Pablo Picasso, and Conoce a José de San Martin.
