Olinguito Speaks Up

Olinguito Alza la Voz

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Olinguito is a shy and furry animal that sucks his thumb all day long and hides in the treetops of the Ecuadorian cloud forest. No one in the whole world knows that he exists. Olinguito is too shy to let the other creatures know that he has been listening and watching them––and enjoying the tales told by Tomás, an ancient Galapagos tortoise. Tomás loves to tell fantastic stories about the strange creatures of the Galapagos Islands––from the poisonous Longnose Stubfoot Toad to a Pinta Island Tortoise named Lonesome George––which no one in the cloud forest has ever seen. When Olinguito hears the other cloud forest animals ridicule Tomás for making things up, he realizes that these are not tall tales: they are memories of creatures driven to extinction. Shy Olinguito is finally moved to speak up in defense of Tomás. This poignant story addresses respect––both for the environment and for our elderly––and explores universal themes of friendship, memories, and finding the courage to speak up. Español: Olinguito es un animal tímido y peludo que se chupa el pulgar todo el día y se oculta en las copas de los árboles del bosque de nubes ecuatoriano. Nadie en el mundo sabe que existe. Olinguito es demasiado tímido para dejar que las otras criaturas sepan que ha estado oyendo y observándolas, y disfrutando de las historias que cuenta Tomás, una viejísima tortuga de Galápagos. A Tomás le encanta contar historias fantásticas sobre las extrañas criaturas de las Islas Galápagos, desde el sapo arlequín hocicudo venenoso hasta una tortuga de la Isla Pinta llamada Jorge el Solitario, que nadie ha visto jamás en el bosque de nubes. Cuando Olinguito ve que los otros animales del bosque de nubes se burlan de Tomás por inventar historias, se da cuenta de que no son todos inventos: son recuerdos de criaturas que fueron llevadas hasta la extinción. Finalmente el tímido Olinguito se siente impulsado a levantar la voz para defender a Tomás.
