Mariana, the last dancing bear

MARIANA, the Last Dancing Bear é o novo livro em língua inglesa de Isabel Mateus. Foi traduzido por Patricia Anne Odber de Baubeta e ilustrado por Cristina Borges Rocha.

Mariana, the Last Dancing Bear brings the genre of animal tale right into the present day. Using original illustrations to enrich the reading experience, Isabel Mateus tackles relevant contemporary themes such as animal abuse and the extinction of native species, even if her portrayals of travelling shows hark back to an age gone by. Interestingly, while references to real locations, historical events, government grants and familiar artefacts such as mobile phones and antibiotics anchor 21st-century readers in their own time and space, readers are also invited to suspend disbelief, enter Mariana’s world through magical realism and empathise with the bear and his companions.”
