ABOUT THIS BOOK

Doña Flor, una señora gigante, vive en un pueblo pequeñito. Los vecinos
la adoran y ella adora a sus vecinos. Deja que los niños utilicen las flores de su jardín como trompetas y las tortillas como balsas. A Doña Flor le encanta leer y con frecuencia puedes verla rodeada de niños que escuchan atentos las historias de sus libros.
 
Un día un tremendo aullido de animal proveniente de las afueras del pueblo asusta a todos, incluida a Doña Flor. Quiere proteger a sus queridos vecinos y con ayuda de sus amigos los animales, se dirige hacia la meseta más alta, en busca de la terrible fiera. Pero cuál no será su sorpresa cuando descubre que tras semejante estruendo se esconde una pequeña criatura.
 
Pat Mora y Raul Colón colaboran nuevamente para traernos una tierna historia sobre una mujer gigante con un corazón muy grande.
 
El último trabajo de Pat Mora y Raul Colón, Tomás y la señora de la biblioteca, fue galardonado con el premio Tomás Rivera.
