Anno's Spain, when first published in France, was titled In the Footsteps of Don Quixote-fitting for our gentle hero tracing the paths of the chivalrous Don Quixote tilting at windmills. And yet there is so much more here; Anno leads his readers through scenes rich with historical, literary, artistic, and architectural beauty. Here the revolutionary genius of Antoni Gaudi is displayed with Sagrada Familia's tallest tower complete, and masterpieces by Picasso, Dali, and Velazquez are woven subtly into the landscape. The youngest readers will delight to discover Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and Columbus's Santa Maria anchored just offshore, beckons the curious to take this delightful adventure through Spain's rich and varied landscape.
