Description

Now available in paperback with illustrations by Kurt Huggins, a New York Times Bestselling Comic Artist. Pedro Pan, One Boy's Journey to America, is a tale of a 12-year-old boy's journey from Cuba to the United States. He takes part in a secret operation of more than 14,000 unaccompanied children, who take freedom flights to escape oppression and tyranny. Ringing in the New Year in 1959, Pedro Infante observes history unfolding as change slowly sweeps through Havana. In 1961, at the noble sacrifice of his parents, Pedro and Pepe, his pet lizard, board an airplane to America. Leaving his family behind, he travels from Havana to a rural farm in Iowa. The vivid imagination of one boy, flying away like Peter Pan with the loving care of a farmer and his wife, he learns English and takes on new chores, meeting a dairy cow, Bella Lou, Tucker, the prized pig, the old barn owl, and the farmer's scarecrow. The group welcomes and encourages him to be most helpful on the Kelley Farm, as everyone has a job on the farm. Will he return to Cuba one day? Will he ever reunite with his family again?
