Fátima and Mateo spend their summer in Puerto Eten, a hot and small town by the sea in the north coast of Peru. Far away from school and the responsibilities of life in the city, they stroll through the fishing coves and surrounding beaches. One day they find a dolphin stranded on the shore and they plan to return it to the sea. This is how they meet Jeremías and Román. With them they embark on a fascinating adventure in which animals will be the perfect accomplices.


“There are many reasons to approach reading A circus without a tent: poetic brushstrokes that enrich narration, endearing characters, dialogues gifted with great spontaneity, an agile rhythm, suspense at crucial moments, an unexpected ending, and all of this set in the beautiful scenarios of the Peruvian north coast. Far from indoctrinating messages, this novel presents us with a well-structured plot that does not underestimate the demands of its readers or their ability to understand the reality represented, as complex as life itself. This is, then, one of the greatest successes of the book and one more reason to recommend its reading for both children and adults.”
