‘The old lady who crossed the world on a bicycle’: Portugal!
The last book by Gabri Ródenas is traveling around the world! Bulgaria, Germany and Greece were the first countries to acquire the rights of the book, and now Portugal has followed the same steps.
This sweet and positive fable is an invitation to discover the treasures life holds for us. To let go from everything that makes us unhappy and to get hold of new and far more thrilling experiences. To see the world as it really is, as we used to see it in those long summer nights when we were chidlren.
A deep and remarkable journey through the eyes of a deeply, loveley main character.
Maru, a 90 year old woman, leads a normal, simple life in Oaxaca, México. She never learned to read, but is full of knowledge. When she discovers that her grandson, whom she has never met, lives in Veracruz, she decides to ride on her bike -her sole posession in the world- and start a journey to meet him. A journy into the world of dreams.
