Title: Duli Finds Friends
Title in translation: Duli encuentra amigos
Writer: Kate Watkins
Translator: Ines Garcia Botana

Description:

Duli is a dinosaur who lives in a cave on the top of a hill. He dreams of being able to get close to the children he sees playing down in the valley. But Duli is afraid of not being accepted… I loved translating it because it is essential to accept others as they are with respect and affection, and children are very sensitive, so it is more difficult for them to manage their insecurity.

This was a great opportunity offered to me by Bill Greendyke. Inspired by author Beatrix Potter’s own pets, the Peter Rabbit fable centers on a family of rabbits with human characteristics. Peter is a mischievous rabbit who likes to get into trouble, unlike his three sisters who maintain impeccable good behavior.
Wonderful teaching for naughty children!
