In Miguel’s Brave Knight (Peachtree, $17.95), Engle transforms the man who wrote Don Quixote into a boy who dreams of the fantastic. After years of entertaining his family and classmates with tales of an imagined knight, Miguel finally shares his story with the world. While those familiar with Cervantes’s novel will particularly enjoy Engle’s nods to Don Quixote, all readers will find themselves on a journey to discover the strength of imagination and the power of hope in turbulent times.
