FROM THE PUBLISHER - Paucar’s parents were killed in an earthquake. Now he lives with Grandmother in the puna, the highest point of the Andes. It is a simple life. Paucar farms the soil, which he loves, and tends the llamas. He longs for the day when he can go to the fair at Kanta. There he will exchange the barley he has planted for other products. In the spring, when the barley turns golden, Paucar harvests it and sets out for the fair. The journey is long, and there are bandits on the way. Grandmother has given Paucar a magic flute to play in case of danger. On the first night, while Paucar is asleep in a cave, an old fox steals the ropes which bind the sacks of barley to the llamas. Now Paucar has no way to get the barley to the fair. But Paucar plays his magic flute. And when he does, he can understand the language of the animals. Together, they arrive at a solution to the problem. This warm, simple story illustrated with bold, sensitive drawings by Carlos Antonio Llerena gives us a glimpse of life in Peru. inventory #5330 ISBN: 0030147662.
