Two children from different backgrounds show that friendship has no language in this epic bilingual story about being lost and finding a friend who understands.

I'm lost.

Soy naufrago.

Two children lost at sea run into each other on an island, but they quickly realize a huge barrier between them. They speak two different languages. Hesitant and unsure, these children must figure out how to connect despite their differences if they ever want to find a way off the island.

But will it be enough? What happens when everything goes wrong just as it seems to finally be going right?

Wife-husband duo René Spencer and Rodolfo Montalvo join forces in this powerful picture book about the perseverance of friendship.

About the Author

As a kid, René Spencer developed a love for nature, art, travel, and foreign languages. She grew up speaking English at home and learned French in school before living and studying in Paris, France. When she is not busy working on picture books, you may find her watching movies from distant lands, reading, hiking, or taking care of bees.

Rodolfo Montalvo is an illustrator/writer who grew up in Southern California speaking mostly Spanish at home and English at school. Today, whether on land, at sea, or in the air, Rodolfo is always working on a story, a drawing, a painting, or some kind of art project. He is the illustrator of the popular picture book Dear Dragon, written by Josh Funk.
