Sítio do Picapau Amarelo

The legendary Sítio do pica-pau amarelo, in Taubaté, where Monteiro Lobato grew up. He was a great writer, and wrote about amazing adventures in his books. Every Brazilian kid knows who this man was Where before were his grandfather lands, remains the old house (now is a museum of Lobato´s work), place of many historic stories that inspired Monteiro Lobato to create characters like Narizinho, Joãozinho, Dona Benta, Tia Anastácia and, of course, the fabric doll, Emilia. I'm living in this city, and ask you to come here to see this place: the old house, the same trees that we know from the books, the characters statues, and you even can watch a little play of one of his famous stories from the collection "Sítio do Picapau Amarelo". And try to read some of his books. It's very good literature.
