ADVENTURES OF ESTEBAN by Marguerite Butterfield


Email this review


A Majorca setting provides the background for these small boy adventures. Esteban Mendoza, whose father owns a small inn high in the island mountains, is interested in exploring and dancing; his happy daily rounds include roaming the countryside with his friend Fernando, his dog Paco and his goat Nanina and, quite often, practising with local folk dancers and players. It is Nanina who gets Esteban into almost more than he bargains for but the outcome is humorous and rewarding:- some valuable ancient coins are found in the mountains and Esteban is chosen as one of the dancers to go and perform in the city.
