Wounded falcons / words by Jairo Buitrago ; pictures by Rafael Yockteng ; translated by Elisa Amado.

Buitrago, Jairo, (author.). Yockteng, Rafael, (illustrator.). Amado, Elisa, (translator.).



"A story about the heart-opening effect that taking care of a wounded creature has on a wounded boy, from acclaimed picture-book creators Jairo Buitrago and Rafael Yockteng. Adrián is always in trouble, at school and at home, while Santiago gets along quite well. But they are friends. When Adrián finds a wounded bird in an abandoned lot in the midst of the city, things begin to change. Taking care of the bird, learning all about it, discovering that it is a falcon, loving it -- and accepting what this love means -- gives Adrián a chance to show others a glimpse of who he truly is. Santiago has always known that Adrián has a big heart, and his steadfast friendship is also the reason Adrián has a chance to heal."-- Provided by publisher.
