THE CANICA GANG
Writing children’s books is one of the hardest things you can imagine. It may seem easy from the outside, but finding the perfect rhythm, tone and discourse for these young demanding readers is a complicated task. Luckily, Sacha Azcona is an expert with them, because I must confess that he has his own little readers at home who are the first ones to taste his works and the ones who make him pass the last test. For this reason, because of his closeness and sensitivity, Sacha already has a loyal audience in this age group. After publishing LA INCREIBLE AVENTURA DE SPLENDIDA, he comes with a new story of LA PANDILLA CANICA that I am sure will not disappoint his readers because it has mystery, laughter, adventure and, for the more daring, a guide to make your own inventions (which can be made at home without endangering anyone, I promise you!).
Encouraging the little ones to read is not an easy task for parents nor teachers, but books like this one make it simple. They have all the right ingredients for children to be taken in by the adventures of Canica and his friends, which could easily be the ones they live in their own real world. If we cultivate reading at an early age, we are helping to nurture good readers, so books like these are of paramount importance to keep reading fun for children so that they grow up wanting to discover new stories.
