BESTSELLER DEL NEW YORK TIMES

El nuevo libro de cuentos ilustrado de los creadores de Iggy Peck, Arquitecta; Rosie Revere, Ingeniera; y Ada Twist, Científica. Esta vez la estrella es Sofía Valdez, una líder de la comunidad que defiende sus ideales.


Cada mañana, Abuelo acompaña a Sofía en su camino a la escuela... hasta que un día Abuelo se lastima el tobillo en un vertedero, y desde entonces no puede acompañarla más. Sofía extraña a su abuelo y se pregunta qué podría hacer ella respecto a esa peligrosa montaña de basura.

Luego, se le ocurre una brillante idea: ¡la ciudad puede convertir ese espacio fangoso en un parque! Se sienta a pensar en los pasos que debe tomar, planifica y finalmente reúne el valor para ir al ayuntamiento, donde lo único que logra es que un empleado le informe que ¡no puede construir un parque porque ella es sólo una niña! Sofía siente que ha perdido una pequeña batalla, pero no la guerra, y desde entonces se propone demostrar de lo que un niño es capaz de hacer.
