Story Gema Sirvent Illustrations Lucia Cobo
Sofia is off to her grandparents for the holidays. She leaves her seaside home, its singing waves and whispering sand knowing that the sounds of the forest await her. Amongst the dark pines and the majestic oaks, she’ll discover the music of the night, the songs of a fox, an owl and a wolf. At a clearing in the woods, she’ll feel the wind blowing as it does on the beach. She’ll wave her invisible baton to the stars, offering as a gift to the forest the music from the sea. Recordings of the narrated story and the performance of the theme song included.
Gema Sirvent obtained a master’s degree in translation and visual arts at the University of Alicante before becoming a freelance writer and editor. She is presently the editorial director of the publishing house Libre Albedrio and also hosts a weekly show about children’s literature on Candil Radio.
After graduating as an engineer, Lucía Cobo made a radical career change and worked for several years as a graphic designer. She then chose to study illustration at the Pablo Picasso School in A Coruña and since, has created several picture books for children. Her most recent publication, A furgoneta branca was released in 2019.
