Un Pequeño Ante Aventurero
Instituto Nacional de Recursos Naturales (INRENA), Peru
This twenty-page Spanish-language comic chronicles the perils of a young tapir as it encounters a farmhouse near its forest in its native Peru. It includes a life lesson for a well-meaning girl who wishes to care for the lost tapir, as well as a villanous hunter, a comically heroic father, and good advice from the tapir’s tiny mouse friend. There is a happy ending.
