Pequeño León

$17.99

Érase una vez un pequeño león que vivía con su familia en la sabana africana. Como a todo cachorro, le gustaba tomar el sol en las rocas, tirar de la melena de su papá y jugar con el pompón de la cola de su mamá. Hasta que un día sin querer se aleja de su manada y siente un fuerte golpe en la cabeza. Al despertarse, nada volverá a ser como antes. Mediante un texto delicado y unas imágenes sugerentes las autoras intentaron retratar la cruda realidad de un animal en cautiverio. Esta obra está inspirada en la historia verídica del león Gaucho que pasó más de cuatro años encerrado en el tráiler de un circo chileno.

Once upon a time there was a young lion living in the African savannah. Like all cubs, he loved playing, sunbathing on the rocks, fooling around with dad's hair and mom's tail. Until one day without meaning to, he got a bit too far away from the group and he feels a sudden hit to his head. Upon waking up nothing will be like it was. 

Using delicate texts and beautiful careful images the author tried to portrait the reality of caged animals in a children's book. This piece is inspired in the true story of Gaucho, a lion that spent years caged in the trailer of a circus.
