This is a Spanish edition of Alvarez's The Secret Footprints, a retelling based on a Dominican folktale about a tribe of people whose feet point backward so as not to reveal their location. The translation is nicely done, and the language provides a real sense of the storytelling tradition. The vibrantly colored illustrations give the tale both a sense of place and a dreamlike quality.

En un isla no muy lejana, en una época no muy distante, había una tribu de criaturas llamadas ciguapas. Vivían en frescas cuevas azules en el fondo del mar y salían a la tierra solamente de noche en busca de alimentos. Afortunadamente, tenían un secreto que las protegía de los seres humanos: tenían los pies al revés, así nadie podía seguirles las huellas. Pero una vez, casi descubren su secreto . . .
 
La galardonado escritora Julia Alvarez teje un cuento mágico sobre una valiente y aguerrida ciguapa llamada Guapa, cuya curiosidad y gusto por los mangos y los pastelitos—casi le cuesta la libertad a su tribu. Complementado por las exquisitas ilustraciones de Fabian Negrin, este cautivador relato, basado en una leyenda dominicana, permanecerá en el recuerdo del lector.
