"A young kid’s exciting cable-car ride forms the drama in this lively picture book . . . sprinkled with Spanish words."—BOOKLIST
Today is the day! Finally Roberto will take his trip on the teleférico to the top of El Ávila, the mountain overlooking his village. Since Papá has to work, Tío Antonio will go with his nephew, who makes sure to pack his camera so he can share the sights later with Papá. Up, up, the cable car goes, over gasp-inducing ravines, to an exciting new world of vendors, animals, and a spectacular view of Caracas below. Beautifully illustrated and offering a Spanish-English glossary at the end, here is a warmhearted tale of a little boy’s first big adventure without his parents.
