Kusikiy: A Child from Taquile, Peru is a story that draws us into the kaleidoscopic and mysterious world of a Peruvian child. Children identify with  Kusikiy’s love for family, with  his concerns for the effects of climate change and his desire to help his town.  When a constellation is missing from the sky, Kusikiy flies with Condor to the hightest snowed peak to ask the APU, the Guardian Spirit of the great glacier for his help.
