First published in France, this book was titled In the Footsteps of Don Quixote-fitting for our hero tracing the path of the chivalrous Don Quixote tilting at windmills! And yet there is so much more here; Anno leads his readers through scenes rich with historical, literary, artistic, and architectural beauty.
Here the revolutionary genius of Antoni Gaudi is displayed with Sagrada Familia's tallest tower complete, and masterpieces by Picasso, Dali, and Velazquez are woven subtly into the landscape. The youngest readers will delight to discover Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and Columbus's Santa Maria anchored just offshore. The adventure beckons the curious to take this delightful journey through Spain's rich and varied landscape.
In addition to the beautiful scenes, the author has included notes in the back of the book that explain his journey and much of the detail in each scene, while still allowing the reader to discover things on their own. These notes draw out the various features of each scene which helps to teach the reader about Spanish history and culture.
