“Marinero de tierra“ | Laia de Ahumada (illustrated by Gemma Capdevila) | Akiara, Spain | 9+ | 64pp
It’s John’s first summer in the mountains, alone with his grandmother, after having lived all his life on a sailing boat with his parents. He will discover the value of soil, as he knew the one of the sea. With summer and the imminent beginning of high school, it will also be time for him to take the path from childhood to adulthood. New feelings and experiences he confines in the logbook his mum gave him before leaving to go and help refugees.
