Sunny Side Up by David Baird
Sunny Side Up
The 21st century hits a Spanish village. It describes the dramatic change, offering an often humorous, sometimes tragic, view of life behind the white walls of Andalusia. It vividly depicts how the storm of progress collides head-on with a near-mediaeval way of life. Several Spanish schools have selected this book as a learning aid for language students.
