Bobi y Cuqui en español is a series
of 42 cartoons depicting a Spanish-speaking canine duo. The series has been designed for instruction and entertainment for both native and non-native Spanish speakers. For children from heritage families, it’s an amusing way to sharpen the language. For non-native Spanish speakers of any age the stories are a fun, and funny, way to learn. At the bottom of each page is an English-language glossary. The series is followed by other jokes in Spanish with vocabulary explanations plus an appendix with the complete translations.
The grammar and vocabulary are simple at the beginning but increase in complexity through the book, starting with sentences in the present tense, using command forms, pronouns of direct and indirect objects, and moving to reflexive verbs and the past tense. The drawings are simple as well as dramatic. Each set of cartoons tells the story of one episode in the lives of Bobi and Cuqui. The cartoons generally feature a funny little comment, often rather ridiculous, at the end.
