Thirteen days to fix dad / Trece días para arreglar a papá
My very first illustrated book is already here! Thanks to the trust placed in me by Mariché Gómez, the publisher from Ediciones Diquesí, and this wonderful story by Chiki Fabregat. Thirteen Days to Fix Dad is an illustrated book for children (written in Spanish) in which I am the illustrator for the front cover and illustrations inside.
When I read Thirteen Days to Fix Dad for the first time I felt this was the perfect project for me to start as a children´s book illustrator. I felt a connection with the story and I could work freely to express the world I imagined throughout the book.
I identified with some of the characters of the story, especially with the main character Zir, the crystal boy.
I was fascinated by Lud and her birds.
Also Zir and Jaya´s friendship captivated me, unavoidably.
In other words, you will find an incredible adventure in another world, just next to ours, inside this book. Where the crystal people live and very brave children courageously fight for their dreams and face their fears. Surrounded by birds. Beware of the butterflies.
Dear reader, do you dare to join Zir, Jaya and Lud in this journey through this other world?
You will find this amazing story at your local bookstore.
(Also with international distributors through the publisher house.)
