Product description

From the time he is a young boy, Neftali hears the call of a mysterious voice. He knows he must follow it – even when the local children taunt him, his harsh father ridicules him and he doubts his own senses. It leads him under the canopy of the lush rainforest, to the fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain. Until, finally, he discovers its source… Combining elements of magical realism with biography, poetry, fiction and beautifully vibrant illustrations, this mesmerising book takes readers on a rare journey into the heart and imagination.

Winner of the Pura Belpré Award.
