Rene y El Pigmeo en la Selva (Audiobook)
This Audio book, narrated in Spanish by it's author, is based on a published book of the same title "Rene y el pigmeo en la selva" (Editorial Norma, Mexico). The title means "Rene and the pygmy in the jungle". Rene is the name of a kid, an ordinary kid, neither the tallest, nor the shortest, neither skinny nor fatty, but when the occasion arises, he becomes as intrepid as any brave young character of any adventure story. And this story requires all his abilities as well as the skills of his friend, the pigmy, to find the salvation of a beautiful girl who fell sick because of the pollution of a river and needs to drink a Tea made with the leaves of an almost extinguished plant from the jungle. All characters in the CD have their own voices and personalities, and, don't forget, their own music theme. There is a lot of artistic work behind this project. This is a 74-minutes-long amazing story and sound landscape which will nourish the imagination of kids, young adults and adults alike. The author wonderfully narrates the story. She is Emma Romeu, the well known writer of literature for young adults and environmental journalism. Her work has been published in international magazines such as National Geographic, and by publishers such as Alfaguara and SM. Some of her books have been translated into English. Emma Romeu's books are available in the USA through Lectorum and Santillana USA.
