The viscachas love to busk in the sun on top of boulders, but in the desert it is not always easy to rech them, since there could be other animals lurking. Which animals? If you want to know, pay attention to the signs given by the big viscacha. The viscachas are friendly rodents that live in the Atacama desert and love to bask in the sun together as a family. They are always attentive to what the big viscacha –that watches over them– indicates so that they are all safe from the animals and the calamities that inhabit the impressive desert landscapes. When night falls, it will be the youngest in the family that will notice the gift that the desert offers them at the end of the day. Just as he already did in Onsen. What are the monkeys doing?, Pato Mena plays with words, illustrations and pictograms to tell a story that will arouse the curiosity of all his readers. In addition, in this new work, the author reveals the wondrous biodiversity of the Atacama desert, the animals that inhabit it, its colors, its landscapes and its majestic night sky.
