#’El Manuscrito de Hana’ (Iván en la ciudad 5), by Belén Monreal Jiménez, is the fifth instalment of the successful collection of children’s stories set in the city of Valencia.
On this occasion, Iván finds a strange book in a street stall. When he realises that its content begins to disappear, he becomes obsessed with it. What he doesn’t imagine is that there are other people interested in the book and they will do anything to get their hands on it.
This is an ideal book for those readers – boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 12 years old – who want to enjoy an adventure story that is as fun as it is educational and as entertaining as it is didactic. Bélen Monreal knows how to adapt to perfection to the age of the characters so that they can be the age of the characters so that readers can empathise with the main characters from the beginning of the story.
For this reason, both for those who seek to follow in the footsteps of Iván with the desire to complete a new adventure, as well as for those who are approaching his universe for the first time…the truth is that they will not fail in their choice. This new edition contains the magnificent essence of this collection, that is to say adventures for children…set in Valencia and with an appealing combination of fiction and historical facts about the city.
