When their father disappears one day, Napiacute; and her little brother Nicleacute; decide to leave their village to find him. They set off up river on a raft. As they go, their search assumes a magical quality, becoming a journey of self-discovery. Turtles carry the raft on their backs; the children are transformed into deer; and other animals offer help and advice. Finally, an armadillo tells them that if they return home, they will find a big surprise awaiting them! Featuring award-winning Domi's richly evocative art, Napi to the Mountain has the imaginative interest and timeless appeal of the Mexican folk culture that inspired it.Domi is the author of 'Napi Va a La Montana / Napi Goes to the Mountain ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780888997159 and ISBN 0888997159.
