Book Details

"Skeletina y el Entremundos", escrito por Susie Jaramillo, es un libro de niños inspirado por el Día de Muertos, perfecto para los fans de películas como Coco y El Libro de la vida. Este es el primer libro en una serie que combina personajes chiflados y una escalofriante aventura, con temas importantes sobre empatía, valentía, autoestima y el interminable poder del amor.

Conoce a Skeletina, una niña sin miedo y amante de la diversión que vive en el Entremundos con sus amigos; algunos son monstruos, otros son fantasmas y otros, seres muy extraños. El Entremundos es un lugar peculiar que visitan aquellos que están vivos pero dormidos, y donde los muertitos pasan el tiempo cuando tienen “asuntos pendientes”. Los visitantes que llegan al Entremundos están allí porque tienen que enfrentar sus miedos o porque van a ver a alguien que recientemente dejó el mundo de los vivos. De cualquier forma, ¡siempre pueden contar con la ayuda de Skeletina!
