Andrew Avnerabout this book: Alicía Catalina Cortés is a Spanish cow who wants to run with the bulls in Pamplona, proving herself noble y bravo, which is noble and brave, to her family. Though tradition forbids her from the running of the bulls and the fiesta of San Fermín, Alicía is determined to follow her heart and her dream.

TORO is a pocket testimonial to the female protagonist's fight for equality and empowerment. It also represents and celebrates diverse experiences and identities. The story is set in the colorful backdrop of Pamplona, Spain during the fiesta of San Fermín and the running of the bulls—famed as one of the most exhilarating, dangerous, and spectacular events around the world.

Ultimately, TORO is a heartfelt, coming-of-age fable told from the cattle's point of view, which features unforgettable Latinx characters. Like CHARLOTTE'S WEB, THE JUNGLE BOOK, and FANTASTIC MR. FOX, anthropomorphic talking animals drive the narrative of this middle grade book that all ages will be able to enjoy for generations to come.
