Anguera · Illustrated by Javier Carbajo
13,2 x 21,0
A fictional series written
for girls aged between 10 and 12. These are uninhibited novels that
are brimful of humour. The main characters are three friends who
are all quite different. Nao, Eli and Martha are the Anti-Barbis:
all for one, and one for all!
"All Barbies are the same: long wavy hair, long legs, the face
of a princess and the kind of clothes worn by film-stars. But me
and my friends are all different: Nao has straight black hair, I've
got red hair in bunches, and Eli's hair is brown, neither short
nor long, pretty or ugly. In other words, just like everyone else.
What's wrong? Everyone's the way they are."
