A fun romp…
Available in several languages, in both bilingual and monolingual editions, Santos’s second in the multi-award-winning Little Polyglot Adventures series takes readers on polyglot siblings’ memorable family trip filled with moments of fun and thrills. The city zoo is holding a special event where families are allowed to take their pets with them. Dylan and Isabella, the little polyglot siblings, are excited for Kiki, Dylan’s pet chicken. But things take a chaotic turn after Kiki ends up inside an animal enclosure. Will the children’s wit and quick thinking save the day? Santos cleverly incorporates foreign language words in the narrative while translations at the bottom of each page make it easy for readers to learn the words. Small moments and incidents, including pets’ appearances and the mishappen at the giraffe enclosure, keep the reader invested in the story. Eszter Miklós’s delightful illustrations pepper the text, detailing story elements through apt emotions. The polyglot siblings’ ability to speak multiple languages should inspire young readers to venture out of their comfort zone and try their hands at a new language.
