Popular children's book Bat Rider is translated into Spanish
Monica A. Barry is hard at work translating the Bat Rider adventures beloved by English-speaking children into Spanish, and has just finished her first paperback book 'El Jinete Murcielago.' This delightful book is published today by Amazon.com
In Spanish, Matthew John is known as Juan Mateo. His dear friend and companion on his adventures, Emily Charlotte, is known as Emilia Carlotta, but the name of the magical and beautiful world they explore remains the same in both languages: Yumi. The world of Yumi is where the mile-high trees grow, and where children must work hard through the night harvesting the fruit from the treetops. Only boys and girls are light enough to fly the bats up so high to pick the Yumi fruit. The grown-ups are too heavy to ride bats, and must depend on the bravery and daring of their children for food and clothing.
The name of the tigress who lurks in the lava tubes is the same in both languages: Baagh. What will happen when Juan Mateo and Emila Carlotta meet the tigress? Order the new Spanish version of Bat Rider from Amazon.com and find out!
