Description

A story that evokes beloved films such as ‘Babe’ and ‘Ratatouille’ 

Alicía Catalina Cortés is a fast and fiery Spanish cow who desperately wants to run with the bulls in Pamplona—but since she’s a cow, tradition forbids her to partake in the fiesta of San Fermín. Through her journey, Alicía learns that to be noble and brave, she must follow her dream and her heart, even if it means defying tradition.

Toro is set in the colorful backdrop of Pamplona, Spain during the fiesta of San Fermín and the running of the bulls, famed as one of the most exhilarating, dangerous, and spectacular events around the world.

When Alicia & Diego meet, they decide that they will help each other ro make their dreams reality so, with the help of their friends, they devise a plan. Things seem o be going well, at least for Alicia, when her father tells her a secret about the bull run that changes everything.

When I requested Toro from the publishers, I wasn’t sure what to think - a middle grade book about the Pamplona bull run told by animals didn’t quite match my usual reading choice. But, from the first page, it grabbed my attention & kept it throughout. Much of my enjoyment is down to the characters of Alicia & Diego, both of whom refuse to accept the limitations set upon them by others, I have no doubt that young people will enjoy Toro but, if my enjoyment is anything to go by, it will appeal to people of all ages. If you are looking for a fun story with interesting characters, a fair bit of action, and a good message, this will definitely fit the bill.
