Overview

Fabio flies through the streets of Bogotá on his bicycle, the children of his neighborhood trailing behind him. It is there that life feels right–where the world of adults, and their lies, fades away. But then one day, he simply forgets. Forgets how to ride his bicycle. And Fabio will never be the same again.

From Colombia comes a special debut talent, Alejandra Algorta, and a first novel of discovery and heartbreak. Algorta’s distinct and poetic prose has been translated by award-winning author Aida Salazar, and presented in English and Spanish.

Reviews
[STAR] "Quiet, emotive illustrations reminiscent of Allen Say's and Brian Selznick's, pull readers onto the streets of Bogotá, where dust announces the arrival of the children who ride in bicycle packs, providing a view of busy streets and the barrio. The book is presented in both English and Spanish versions; Salazar's translation masterfully replicates the distant-yet-confiding tone of Algorta's Spanish original, fully conveying the story and its vivid images. An unmissable tale about loss and reclamation."-Kirkus Reviews (starred),
