Overview

Written for young readers who haven't yet been introduced to the legend of Don Quixote, this retelling is designed to evoke the same fresh and humorous reactions from contemporary readers as it did from Cervantes' audience 400 years ago. Keeping the lighthearted spirit in mind, this interpretation presents the 20th chapter from the original work—free of the obligation to analyze or critique. Don Quixote's madness and Sancho Panza's simplicity bring both gravity and gaiety to the story.
 

Escrito para lectores jóvenes que todavía no saben nada de la leyenda de Don Quijote, este libro está construido para que la primera impresión que reciban de esta obra sea la misma que recibieron aquellos lectores de Don Quijote hace cuatrocientos años: la de estar ante una obra entretenida, fresca y divertida. Con ese propósito se narra el capítulo XX del primer tomo de la obra en un estilo simple y chistoso, sin obligación a analizar o criticar. La locura de don Quijote y la sencillez de Sancho producen una obra graciosa y divertida que provoca la risa y reflección.
