Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This work is intended for children aged 9-14 years. Music, dance, and art feature prominently in this updated edition. In a new section, readers will be introduced to writer Mario Vargas Llosa and will learn simple words in Quechua. Young readers will be fascinated by this country's ancient mysteries, modern cities, and culture which blends the traditions of indigenous ancestors, such as the Inca, with those of the Spanish. Topics include: many early civilisations including the Inca empire; the Spanish conquest and Peru's path to independence; life in Peru's towns and cities; religion and festivals, including the sun festival, Inti Raymi; ancient foods such as corn beer and roasted guinea pig; a recipe for natillas piuranas, a sweet milk pudding; and clothing, sports, and leisure.
