Magenta Velero adventures started as a gift for my nieces. I wrote them a book to encourage their creativity, share my joy of reading and motivate them to live their own brave adventures. Now I would love to be able to tell her story to children from 7 years old all around the world.
This illustrated novel began to take shape in 2015, but it was in 2021 when it was selected by the Editorial Babidi-Bú for publication, and after several months of work we have everything ready to distribute the book. It looks great! To celebrate it, in this crowdfunding you can get the book with an exclusive pre-sale price, and from December 7th in bookstores and main online sales platforms.
There's a lot of love in the booktext, in the illustrations and in the activities, to make the adventures of Magenta Velero a great experience for every age. I'm excited to transport you to the eastern seas, and get involved in the story of the mysterious and magical wooden chest. But I will not tell you more, because I want you to discover it on your own.
