9780763627089: Roberto's Trip to the Top

Breathtaking vistas and bustling scenes await a boy and his uncle when they ride the teleférico to the top of a mountain in Venezuela.

Today was the day! Finally it is time for Roberto to take his well-earned trip on the teleférico to the top of El Ávila, the mountain overlooking his village. Since Papá has to work, Tío Antonio will go with his nephew, who makes sure to pack his camera so he can share the sights with Papá. Up, up, up, the cable car goes, over gasp-inducing ravines, to an exciting new world of vendors, animals, and a spectacular view of Caracas below. Featuring lively illustrations and interwoven with Spanish words that are translated in a glossary at the end, here is a warmhearted tale of a little boy’s first big adventure without his parents.

About the Author:

John B. Paterson Jr. and John B. Paterson Sr. (1932-2013), father-and-son authors, based this story on their own 1970s trip to Caracas, where they rode the very teleférico featured in the book. John Sr. also collaborated with his wife, Newbery Award-winning author Katherine Paterson, on Consider the Lilies, Images of God, and Blueberries for the Queen. CONSIDER THE LILIES, IMAGES OF GOD, and BLUEBERRIES FOR THE QUEEN. John Jr., a first-time author, lives in New Canaan, Connecticut.

Renato Alarcão has illustrated many children’s books, including RED RIDIN' IN THE HOOD AND OTHER CUENTOS by Patricia Santos Marcantonio. He lives in Brazil.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Roberto's reward for good grades is a trip with his uncle up the teleférico, or cable car, to the mountains overlooking Caracas, Venezuela. Roberto had hoped to take pictures for his father, who has stayed behind tending the store, but he drops the camera down a ravine. The disappointed but resourceful lad then asks a vendor to take a snapshot so he can share his adventure with Papá after all. The text is primarily narrative, relating what happens to Roberto, and its direct prose makes it better suited to independent reading than to reading aloud. The book uses little figurative language, but a simile comparing cable cars to spaceships nicely conveys a child's sense of wonder in new experiences. The round, cheerful faces in the illustrations highlight the simple joys found in the text. Alarcão's heavy brushstrokes also evoke the mists that hang over the tropical rain forests of Venezuela's mountains. Spanish words are sprinkled throughout, and children can use contextual clues to guess their meanings (or use the glossary). However, the writers use many phrases that are more common in Mexico than in Venezuela, such as ándale and peso. Moreover, the description of a tortilla fits the Mexican usage of this term, whereas in Venezuela the word tortilla is used to describe a fritatta. Although the book is a nice introduction to a relatively unfamiliar country, it does not accurately reflect Venezuelan Spanish.—Mary Landrum, Lexington Public Library, KY
