Juana & Lucas: Big Problemas

author/illustrator: Juana Medina

series name:
Juana and Lucas

Juana’s life is just about perfect. She lives in the beautiful city of Bogotá with her two most favorite people in the world: her mami and her dog, Lucas. Lately, though, things have become a little less perfect. Mami has a new hairdo and has been spending a LOT of time with a new amigo named Luis. He is kind and teaches Juana about things like photography and jazz music, but sometimes Juana can’t help wishing things would go back to the way they were before. When Mami announces that she and Luis are getting married and that they will all be moving to a new casa, Juana is quite distraught. Lucky for her, though, some things will never change—like how much Mami loves her. Based on author-illustrator Juana Medina’s own childhood in Colombia, this follow-up to the Pura Belpré Author Award–winning Juana & Lucas is sure to resonate with readers of all ages.

“Juana's big problema will resonate with many readers, who will look forward to hearing more about this spunky Colombian girl's life.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
