My Review:

David felt it was a waste of time trying to draw animals until his instructor went on a tri back in ancient history with him. The celebratory traditions and manor of painting on rocks which were performed gave Dave a whole new perspective and appreciation for those living at that time of history.

This novel presents artistic views in a entertaining, comic strip way which is sure to attract the younger audience. The characters are comical but the adventures and ideas are effective.

M. Mosquera presents the illustrations in a vague but “fitting” manner. The color and occasional detail are very well done.

Author and Illustrator:

María José is a teacher. She won international illustrations awards.

Gonzalo has a degree in art history. He works in museums and as a tourist guide.
