A Trio of New Spanish-Language Books for Kids!




Written by and About Latinos, Titles Include La Última Ola de Marianela,

And Two New Installments in the Mirando Series: Mira And Mira La Granja


Puerto Rican Native and New York Resident Rafael E. Trujillo Authored All Three



Baa with the sheep, surf with the big kids, or just spend some quiet time reading.  With a trio of titles to be published in February 2009, Big Head Fish offers original Spanish-language books for kids that celebrate a colorful world full of discovery.


La Última Ola de Marianela follows the adventures of surfer girl Marianela.  From playing sports to taking charge of a daring journey, Marianela never says no to a good wave – or her big ideas.


After a tiring morning surfing, Marianela is awoken from her nap on the beach by a coconut falling on her head, jogging her memory of the legend of “the last wave” (la última ola).  The old mariner’s tale tells of a giant wave that crashes onto a forgotten island right before the sun sets.  The intrepid Marianela convinces her surfing buddies to set out in search of this mythical “last wave.”  After patching up a run-down boat and charting their course, the crew sets out.  Along the way, they explore the seas – fishing off deck, snorkeling with a school of fish, and exploring a colorful reef.  Bad luck and rough seas push their boat aground, but the gang takes advantage of the great waves to surf.  Just as the sun is about to set, they chance upon la última ola and joyously catch the ride of their young lives. 


Mira and Mira La Granja are two bright and playful board books featuring the beloved characters from Big Head Fish’s Mirando y Mirando (2005).  Enrique the coquí, Josephina the iguana and Abelardo the owl all return to show tots some familiar objects in Mira. From soccer balls to stars, little ones will recognize what they see around their homes and neighborhoods everyday.  Mira La Granja takes kids on a tour of the farm, pointing out animals, crops and tools.  Whether in the city or country, kids will learn new words with this lively pair of durable books.


All three titles were written by Rafael E. Trujillo and illustrated by Kimi Liu and are available for purchase online and through major retailers.


La Última Ola de Marianela, Mira and Mira La Granja are published by BIG Head Fish Media, based in New York and San Juan.  Information can be found at
