Libros We Love: La Roca de Mila y Carlos


Written & Illustrated by Alessandro Montagnana

Mila the seal has found a special rock in the middle of the ocean. She loves to jump off it into the water, and rest on its sun-warmed surface. One day, after a ridiculous accident, she meets a new friend: Carlos the seagull. They can tell immediately that theirs will be a special friendship!

But then (all too soon!) Carlos’ dad comes to take him home. And to make matters worse, a storm is coming! Will they ever see each other again?

La Roca de Mila y Carlos published by NubeOcho, features vibrant illustrations in a nautical palette, with seascapes that beautifully capture the characters’ ocean home. This isn’t the first (or last) children’s story about a friendship between animals; but in true NubeOcho fashion, Alessandro Montagana’s take is original and tender.
