About The Book

Una niña callada que se abruma fácilmente por su escandalosa familia encuentra una tierra mágica y silenciosa en la que descubre lo que hace que un hogar sea un hogar en esta nueva versión del muy querido, alegre y mágico cuento folclórico caribeño “La cucarachita Martina.”

Las fiestas están llenas de tías con sus ropas coloridas y sus risas escandalosas. ¡Eso es demasiado para Martina! Por suerte, con tanto ruido, nadie nota cuando se da una escapada.

Martina se traslada a un lugar mágico —una isla cálida que le resulta familiar— en donde puede jugar en paz y tranquilidad. Martina está, por fin, en casa —pero ¿es realmente su hogar?
