Neftalí's father wants him to be a doctor. But Neftalí is not like other children. How he reconciles his own dreams with his father's is at the heart of this profoundly moving story of the life of poet Pablo Neruda.

From the time he is a young boy, Neftalí hears the call of a mysterious voice. Even when the neighborhood children taunt him, and when his harsh, authoritarian father ridicules him, and when he doubts himself, Neftalí knows he cannot ignore the call. Under the canopy of the lush rain forest, into the fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain, he listens and he follows.

Combining elements of magical realism with biography, poetry, and literary fiction, Pam Muñoz Ryan takes listeners on a rare journey of the heart and imagination.
