An international successful series on personal growing
Twelve years have passed since we launched the first title of the “Victory” series and it has become an international successful series.
Since then, 10 titles have been published, has been translated into 13 languages, and keeps spreading worldwide with every new title.
We are now delighted to add the series to the Combel catalogue with the publication 11th title: Good Morning, Sleepyhead!
In this collection of short stories on personal growing, each title tackles a key issue for this age group in a very funny and easy-going way: selfishness, sincerity, personal hygiene, good manners, nightmares, violence, swearing, consumerism or hyperconnectivity. Simple and easy to understand, texts come with amazing illustrations by Cristina Losantos to stimulate the imagination.
Good Morning, Sleepyhead!
A story to wake you up happy and ready for the day!
Mercedes doesn’t like to get up early. She wakes up grumpy and doesn’t say a peep to anyone.
She may looks like she is angry, but she is just a cranky morning person that wakes up on the wrong side of the bed every day. Until her best friend Matilda spends a few days with her.
How will Mercedes handle the situation? And Matilda?
