You’ve never read a pirate saga quite like this one.
If you’ve ever dreamt of discovering that your father is a genuine pirate,or of fighting sea monsters and gigantic automatons at his side; if you want to believe in mermaids, hidden treasure and even magical violins…; or if you just think that good literature, fast-paced action and plenty of humour are by no means incompatible, Juan Plata is the saga for you. Illustrations by the criticallyacclaimed Jordi Lafebre.
Sold in Brazil to Editora WMF Martins Fontes, and English literary agency Rights People holds the rights of the series for the English-speaking worldwide!
