This fictionalized first-person biography-in-verse of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra follows the early years of the child who grew up to pen “Don Quixote,” the first modern novel. Miguel looks to his own imagination for an escape from his family's troubles and finds comfort in his colorful daydreams. At a time when access to books was limited, Miguel is inspired by storytellers and wandering actors who perform during festivals. Based on the children’s book by Margarita Engle.
