Cuentos de noche: Relatos de Latinoamérica: A TOON Graphic (Paperback)
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now.
Thrilling tales, lighthearted twists!
Eisner Award winner LINIERS brings his exuberant cartooning style and irrepressible sense of fun to the spooky folktales of his childhood, telling three from across Latin America: the Iara, a mermaid who lures her love to her underwater domain; La Lechuza, an enormous owl who terrorizes a town after dark; and La Luz Mala, a spooky light that menaces gauchos on the pampas. Combined with back matter on the region’s fascinating ecology, culture, and history, these stories will send a delicious shiver down young spines, while encouraging children to appreciate a rich and dynamic heritage.
