Livros de Ontem is pleased to present "The Mystery of the Legend of Penedo dos Ovos", the first book in the collection "The Mystery of Legends of Sintra" by author Cristina Félix.

Joana is a pre-adolescent, the daughter of a portuguese mother and an american father, who lives in the USA, and who is forced to come and spend her summer vacation at her grandmother's farm in Sintra. After some reluctance in his stay in Portugal, he eventually discovers that, by inheritance of a great-aunt, he is a guardian of the Serra de Sintra.

In search of your Intertemporal Amulet, you will discover worlds where time does not exist, mysterious characters, passages that take you back to the past and get to know Queen Amelia of Portugal.

She and her cousins find themselves in a spectacular adventure, in a mountain where magic is the main stage.

This is the first book in the collection The Mystery of the Legends of Sintra, where legends are portrayed with a new approach, turning them into adventures. The books also have some historical content, as far as the various monuments that are included in the Serra de Sintra are concerned.

NOTE: The book will be worth € 10 during the crowdfunding campaign and € 12 after the closing.

About the author

My name is Cristina Felix, I'm forty-three, and I'm from Sintra, where I've lived, practically, my whole life.

I come from a family of artists, where the world of books, painting, photography, restoration, among other artistic activities have always had a strong presence in my life. Since I was little I like to write, as well as to read, fantastic literature being my favorite.

In the last twelve years, I have worked with children in the recreational / creative aspect of ATL where I have developed countless works of plastic expression, corporal expression, and even cinematography, with a short film entitled "The Haunted School"; and in the field of AEC'S (curriculum enrichment classes) where he taught Plastic Expression, always with the aim of stimulating and awakening in the younger ones his creativity and a different way of approaching the various themes.

It was for all these years, working with children, for the children, where I found myself, so many times, looking for new stories and many others I wrote, that this project came to be.

The Serra de Sintra has always been the scene of the most diverse fantasies; in her palaces I was a princess, in the warrior castle, in all the gardens I joked about it, from all the viewpoints I traced routes and let my imagination fly.

This project of the Mystery of the Legends of Sintra, are all this, all the affection I have for the Mountain, all the pleasure I have for writing and all the will I have for seeing children grow up reading a source of knowledge, entertainment and creativity.
