La caimana

Manrique, María Eugenia
El día que Faoro encontró aquel bebé caimán, que cabía en la palma de su mano, lo acarició suavemente y, sin siquiera pensarlo, lo metió en el bolsillo de su camisa. Como no tenía la piel algo oscura, le puso el nombre de Negro. Fue el comienzo de una shitoria, y de una gran amistad, que todavía hoy se recuerda en las orillas del río Apure.

"Based on a true story and written by someone who witnessed it, this touching picture book is set in Venezuela. A man named Faoro found an orphaned, newborn caiman and brought her home. The bond they formed was unbreakable and everlasting. Information about Faoro and the author is provided at the end. Further information about José Faoro and his pet caiman, with photographs. Full-color illustrations."
