Puerto Rican writer and artist María Perez-Gómez has released her book "The Magical Closet." It is the first in a series of books that teaches children to develop the skills to bravely face difficult emotions.

Together with Pito the Parrot, Guanito the Iguana and other creatures of the tropical forest, Luca and his brothers must discover the secret to renewing hope and healing for everyone on the island. To do so, they must discover their own magical powers and enlist the help of the Sleeping Giant, a folk hero no one has ever seen...
