En la exuberante selva tropical del Parque Nacional Iguazú, tucanes y mariposas revolotean entre los árboles mientras elegantes jaguares merodean por el suelo de la jungla. Deslumbrantes cascadas brindan un estruendoso telón de fondo mientras grandes vencejos oscuros vigilan el cielo. En este viaje mágico a través de una de las maravillas del mundo natural, el renombrado poeta Francisco X. Alarcón sigue la tradición oral amerindia, permitiendo que los animales hablen por sí mismos con sus propias voces rugientes, altísimas y revoloteantes. Las gloriosas ilustraciones de medios mixtos de Maya Christina Gonzalez dan vida a los vibrantes colores y texturas de la selva tropical.

In the lush rainforest of the Iguazú National Park, toucans and butterflies flit through the trees while sleek jaguars prowl the jungle floor. Dazzling waterfalls provide a thunderous backdrop while great dusky swifts keep watch overhead. In this magical journey through one of the wonders of the natural world, renowned poet Francisco X. Alarcón follows the Amerindian oral tradition, allowing the animals to speak for themselves in their own roaring, soaring, fluttering voices. Maya Christina Gonzalez’s glorious mixed media illustrations bring the vibrant colors and textures of the rainforest to life. Presented in both English and Spanish, this lively poetry collection features the endangered flora and fauna of the Iguaz rain forest in Argentina, and addresses environmental issues in a fun, engaging way.
