Juana & Lucas: Muchos Changes

author/illustrator: Juana Medina

series name:
Juana and Lucas

I agree with my abuelos—I think I will be a VERY good older hermana. Even when I am not the most patient human being on earth.

Juana’s life in Bogotá, Colombia, is just about perfect. Every now and then a big problema comes along—like having to learn English or Juana’s mami getting remarried—but things eventually settle down, and life goes back to feeling pretty perfect again. But then Mami springs two new sorpresas on Juana. One: Juana will be spending her school break going to skating camp instead of relaxing (even though she doesn’t know how to skate!). Two: Mami is going to have a baby! How can one Juana-size person possibly handle SO. MANY. CHANGES? The answer: with the gentle love of Mami and Luis, the guidance of Juana’s abuelos, the sympathy of newfound friends, the ready ear of her furry amigo Lucas, and Juana’s own expansive heart.

“Tackles serious issues . . . in a kid-friendly way that acknowledges the emotions such experiences can cause. Another fantastic adventure.” —Booklist (starred review)

She is also the author-illustrator of the picture books 1 Big Salad, ABC Pasta, and Sweet Shapes, and the illustrator of Smick! by Doreen Cronin, Lena’s Shoes Are Nervous: A First-Day-of-School Dilemma by Keith Calabrese, I’m a Baked Potato! by Elise Primavera, and Star of the Party by Jan Carr.
