¨Kike Calvo has done it again! The author who enchanted us all with "The Adventures of Pili" has crafted another’s children’s masterpiece. In “The Richest Hummingbird in the Rain Forest,” Kike shares the endearing tale of Walela and Unicorn, two adorable hummingbirds at the center of a parable that reminds us all of an important life lesson. The illustrations are also superb, lending even greater depth and appreciation to the story. Kudos to Kike!¨ ~Peter Antonucci. Author, Billionaire’s Paradise: Ecstasy at Sea.

As I moved forward in the development of The Adventures of Pili project during 2020 I could not but start wondering if I should change my inner question to what for rather than to why.
