Synopsis

Bartolome: The Infanta's Pet by Rachel Van Kooij

17th-century Madrid is not a kind place for a dwarf like Bartolome, and his family has to keep him hidden in a small back room. Then the king's little daughter, the Infanta, wants to have him as her 'human dog'. But life in the royal palace is scary and humiliating. Until Bartolome discovers the artist's studio - Colourful and gripping, this is an inspiring story of courage and hope.

Reviews

Nothing is lost in translation in this special book that is part novel, part history and wholly a work of art. --Sunday Independent
