The Amazing Adventures of Selma Calderon: A Globetrotting Magical Mystery of Courage, Food & Friendship (Truth & Magic) (Volume 1) follows the adventures of a girl named Selma who has magical powers and lives with her guardian Guadey. Guadey who also has powers teaches Selma a spell which lets her transport herself to different locations. Selma gets excited tends to be a sponge that likes to observe everything magical and learn everything she can.
