From the Publisher:
Set in the Dominican Republic, the legend of the ciguapas, creatures who live in caves in the sea, turns into reality for one family when they happen upon Guapa, a young ciguapa, on land as she searches for food in the late evening hours. Simultaneous.
Annotation:
Based upon a legend from the Dominican Republic, this book for children is by the celebrated author of adult fiction Julia Alvarez. It tells the story of the ciguapas, mysterious sea creatures so fearful of humans that they only come ashore at night--and their humanlike feet leave backward footprints, so they can't be pursued. One evening, Guapa, a fearless ciguapa, is spotted by a young boy. Guapa flees, but she can't resist returning to learn more about the mysterious humans. Will Guapa make a new human friend? Or is her life at risk? With color illustrations throughout.
Author Bio
Julia Alvarez
Like many of her characters, Alvarez emigrated from the Dominican Republic (where her father worked in the underground against Trujillo) to Queens, New York when she was 10 years old. Educated at boarding schools, Middlebury College (B.A. 1971), and Syracuse University (M.F.A.), she has been a traveling poet-in-residence for the state of Kentucky, a teacher, and a poet. Most of her work is about the Latina experience in America, and her novels tend to be written from multiple points-of-view.
