Description
Who ever heard of a girl glassblower?
In Mexico, where the sun is called "el sol" and the moon is called "la luna, " a little girl called Elena wants to blow into a long pipe...and make bottles appear, like magic.
But girls can't be glassblowers. Or can they?
Join Elena on her fantastic journey to Monterrey -- home of the great glassblowers -- in an enchanting story filled with magic realism.
