Once damas atrevidas

(Eleven adventurous ladies) Book not yet available in English


Eleven adventurous damsels were walking to Fez. One of them got lost in the narrative, and there were only ten left. Ten adventurous damsels followed a Berber, but one of them fell in the sand dunes, so there were only nine left. The intrepid damsels are fading away as they travel the world, from Fez to A Coruña, through the Moon, Russia, China, Australia, or Monterrey.


This engaging book focuses on cultural diversity, and on women’s role and independence. Its rhythm and funny colourful illustrations capture the essence of the places these women travel to. However, images do not enable readers to identify which of the women has just left the group. Handwriting style is also accurately adapted to first readers. The book has received several awards.
