El fandango de Lola
Written by Anna Witte
Illustrated by Micha Archer

In this Spanish-language edition of the bestselling Lola's Fandango, little Lola is tired of living in her glamorous big sister's shadow. When she starts taking secret flamenco lessons from her Papi, she discovers her special talent and duende, or spirit - but will she find the courage to share her new skill with the world? Micha Archer's collage paintings beautifully bring Lola and her family to life, while the rhythms, movements and sounds of flamenco infuse the text, making this picture book a delightful read-aloud.
