Look Inside


The spitfire heroine Pepita is back for another exciting adventure, only Pepita thinks it’s not so very exciting. She’s been given a school assignment to “find out things” about her parents or another older member of her family. But who wants to hear about her family? Pepita would much rather pretend about dragons and castles.

So, when Pepita sets out and begins asking questions, she interviews her mother, her Tía Rosa, her father, and even a squirrel and a caterpillar. She discovers that she was right, that the lives of her family members are not very exciting. How can she make her report “very, very, very important” if no one has anything to say?
Pepita decides to take matters into her own hands and create some stories of her own for her family members, but early one morning, her father wakes her from her sleep to show her some very real magic of his own.

In this, the fourth installment of the Pepita series for readers aged 3 to 7, Pepita discovers that the love and care of a family is very, very important.
