About the Book

Juana and Lucas

Fans of Judy Moody and Clarice Bean will love Juana, the spunky young Colombian girl who stars in this playful, abundantly illustrated new series.

Juana loves many things --- drawing, eating Brussels sprouts, living in Bogotá, Colombia and especially her dog, Lucas, the best amigo ever. She does not love wearing her itchy school uniform, solving math problems or going to dance class. And she especially does not love learning the English. Why is it so important to learn a language that makes so little sense? But when Juana’s abuelos tell her about a special trip they are planning --- one that Juana will need to speak English to go on --- Juana begins to wonder whether learning the English might be a good use of her time after all. Hilarious, energetic and utterly relatable, Juana will win over los corazones --- the hearts --- of readers everywhere in her first adventure, presented by namesake Juana Medina.

Audiobook available, narrated by Almarie Guerra
