Isla

Written by Arthur Dorros
Illustrated by Elisa Kleven
Published by Puffin Books

Rosalba is going on an imaginary journey to the Caribbean island where her grandmother grew up. Through her abuela’s eyes and stories, Rosalba visits with relatives who still live on la isla and sees the beautiful terrain of the island–from the lush, tropical rain forest to the bustling old city. Along the way Rosalba and her grandmother visit a busy fruit market, then cool off with a swim in the turquoise sea filled with colorful fish. Their magical trip is brought to life by Elisa Kleven’s shimmering collage artwork.
