Barcelona and Gaudí

Lluís Albert Arrufat y Roger Roig

Carla and Pol are great friends who are always keen to discover new things in their own surroundings and, in particular, to explore new places, learning details of their history and talking with the people who live there. Zum-Zum is a very special balloon that becomes their inseparable friend. They have not spent a moment apart from him ever since they met him one day at a fair. Zum-Zum takes them into the most surprising situations and, thanks to him, Pol and Carla have exciting new experiences every day. On this occasion, they have the chance to contribute towards the construction of the Sagrada Familia temple. It seems that somebody wants to stop construction on this famous work forever. The children will have to overcome a lot of obstacles and confront different kinds of danger as they discover details of Barcelona’s Modernist buildings with their exceptional guide. Moreover, they are helped by all the “stone” animals that the brilliant architect Antoni Gaudí created. This is a “monumental” adventure.
