El sueno de un nino puede cambiar el mundo entero. Esta es una inspiradora historia, basada en la vida real del autor, sobre el poder de la imaginacion y la fuerza de la determinacion. Cuando una terrible sequia asolo la pequena aldea donde vivia William Kamkwamba, su familia per...dio todas las cosechas y se quedo sin nada que comer y nada que vender. William comenzo entonces a investigar en los libros de ciencia que habia en la biblioteca en busca de una solucion, y de este modo encontro la idea que cambiaria la vida de su familia para siempre: construiria un molino de viento. Fabricado a partir de materiales reciclados, metal y fragmentos de bicicletas, el molino de William trajo la electricidad a su casa y ayudo a su familia a obtener el agua que necesitaba para sus cultivos. Asi, el empeno y la ilusion del pequeno Willy cambio el destino de su familia y del pais entero. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The New York Times bestselling memoir of the heroic young inventor who brought electricity to his Malawian village. When a terrible drought struck William Kamkwamba's tiny village in Malawi, his family lost all of the season's crops, leaving them with nothing to eat and nothing to sell. William began to explore science books in his village library, looking for a solution. There, he came up with the idea that would change his family's life forever: he could build a windmill. Made out of scrap metal and old bicycle parts, William's windmill brought electricity to his home and helped his family pump the water they needed to farm the land. Retold for a younger audience, this exciting memoir shows how, even in a desperate situation, one boy's brilliant idea can light up the world. Complete with photographs, illustrations, and an epilogue that will bring readers up to date on William's story, this is the perfect edition to read and share with the whole family.
