My Town’s (Extra) Ordinary People


Nico lives in a small coastal town, with ordinary neighbors and friends. But are they really ordinary? As Nico meanders through his town he introduces the readers to his friends. There’s Josean, who works on the docks and could be an Olympic rower. Peru recites all different kinds of poetry to his son. Nico’s best friend, Telmo, is a skateboarder with a wild imagination. Eva plays a mean jazz guitar and gives lessons so she can pay her rent and go to school. Each of these people is depicted in charming, colorful drawings celebrating their quirkiness and individuality. 48 pages. For ages 5-8 years.
