Adanya is a quiet and shy little girl until the south wind blows. It caresses her, whispering faraway sounds in her ears, filling the air with delightful and unfamiliar scents. When it blows, something about her changes and her voice fills with sounds from the past. Illustrations and words merge in this poetic fairytale, the worthy winner of second prize during the 2008 Premio Internacional de Ilustración Biblioteca Insular de Gran Canaria. From the depths of one’s innermost feelings, it subtlety discusses the feeling of being uprooted experienced by those who emigrate to the north.
