About the book

Lucia is an adorable looking little llama on the outside but on the inside....not so much.  You see she is not a good sport.  When she loses she throws a trantrum and accuses others of cheating and when she wins she rubs it in their faces and dances around full of mean spirited pride .  Finally her friends have had enough and take it upon themselves to exclude her from playing. She makes everyone feel uneasy because of her contemptuous mood swings and she ruins the whole spirit of having fun when playing. They collectively take a stand and boycott her from their fun.  Oh my! What has Lucia done? 

Lucia, with the help of her beloved grandfather and her sweet dad, discovers the errors of her ways and is redeemed but will her friends believe her and accept her back into their game's circles?  

This charming book is for readers ages 4-8.  The illustrator has done an exeptional job of creating a character that kids can relate to and the colour pallet that she has chosen is vibrant.  Her brilliant artistic skills makes all the characters in the book come alive.  The author uses subtle humour and rhymes to teach readers how to practise good sportsmanship.  I highly recommend this book.  It is a wonderful addition to the Little Boost series.

About the illustrator

I'm a freelance illustrator based in Madrid, Spain. I lived in Barcelona for almost a couple of years where I graduated in a MA Illustration at Eina School in Barcelona in 2009. After a few years working as an Art Director in several advertising agencies, I decided to quit and try as a full time illustrator. So far, I've worked with many international clients from United States, Australia, UK, France or Singapore. I've been published by Penguin Ramdon House, Simon & Schuster, SM, Nosy Crow, Sterling or Little Tiger Press.

In my spare time, I'm a Asthanga yogi, a classic cinema lover and go also crazy for music and lemon pies.
