El gran Gatsby
A translation of The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Illustrations by Jonny Ruzzo
• Part of the Sexto Piso ilustrado series
Considered to be one of the best American novels and perhaps the
enduring symbol of the Jazz Age, the story of Jay Gatsby portrays
a man who represents the best and the worst of the American
Dream. His desire is to accumulate money and to spend it ostentatiously with the purpose of pursuing the one thing he really wants
in life: the love of the beautiful but frivolous Daisy Buchanan. In
this illustrated edition, Fitzgerald’s text is accompanied and reinterpreted by the talented American graphic artist Jonny Ruzzo.
His magnificent illustrations build a visual and temporal bridge
that modernizes the classic book and provides a new dimension
that reinforces the undeniable applicability of one of the most read
and celebrated novels of contemporary literature.
Considerada como una de las mejores novelas estadounidenses y
quizá el símbolo más perdurable de la Edad del Jazz, la historia de
Jay Gatsby retrata un hombre quien representa lo mejor y lo peor
del sueño americano. Tiene una disposición a acumular dinero y
gastarlo con ostentación a fin de perseguir lo único que en realidad le interesa en la vida: el amor de la hermosa pero frívola
Daisy Buchanan. En esta edición ilustrada, el texto de Fitzgerald
aparece acompañado y reinterpretado por el talentoso artista gráfico norteamericano Jonny Ruzzo. Sus magníficas ilustraciones
tienden un puente tanto visual como temporal que actualiza el
libro clásico y otorgan una nueva dimensión que tan sólo refuerza
la innegable vigencia de una de las novelas más leídas y alabadas
de la literatura contemporánea.

The stories in this collection are largely unknown to the general
public and relatively true to their original form, giving readers a
closer glimpse of the initial stages of the Brothers Grimm’s process
of obsessively editing and rewriting their work. These early, darker
versions of the fairy tales are not particularly suitable for children
and hint at the pressure the duo felt to alter them in order to
avoid harsh criticism. The compilation contains 17 tales, each
accompanied by a fantastic black-and-white illustration.
Las historias de esta recopilación son prácticamente desconocidas
para el gran público y relativamente fieles a su forma original,
mostrándole al lector un fugaz vistazo de los albores del proceso

no son particularmente apropiadas para los niños e insinúan la
presión que sintió el dúo de cambiar los cuentos para evitar una
crítica severa. La compilación contiene 17 relatos, cada uno acompañado por una estupenda ilustración en blanco y negro.

a French literary prize awarded by Femina magazine and voted on
by a jury composed exclusively of women
Based on the author’s own life, this acclaimed novel is as much a
long love letter as it is a widower’s desperate attempt to conserve
every detail of a deceased wife through the love of literature that
they both shared. Devastated by his loss and blamed by her family
for her death, the author reconstructs his abbreviated love story, in
which the deepest form of love and the pain caused by its loss converge in an exceptional synthesis.
Basada en la vida del propio autor, esta galardonada novela es
tanto una larga carta de amor como el intento desesperado de un
viudo por conservar cada detalle de su fallecida esposa a través
de la pasión por la literatura compartida por ambos. Devastado
por la pérdida y culpado por la familia de ella de su muerte, el
autor reconstruye su historia de amor truncada, donde el amor
más profundo y el dolor que ocasiona su pérdida confluyen en
una excepcional síntesis.

Los matrimonios
El áloe
A translation of The Marriages
A translation of The Aloe
Henry James
Katherine Mansfield
Translated into Spanish for the first time, this Henry James novella
is a wonderful example of the writer’s prose fiction, with character
confrontations and plots that show the similarities and differences
between social classes. The story, divided between the United
States and Europe—much like James himself—presents the conflicts that arise in marriages, courtships, and familial relationships.
As jealousy fuels the main character, Adela, to try to destroy her
newly widowed father’s relationship with the ostentatious Mrs.
Churchley, her brother Godfrey’s secret marriage falls apart.
Portraying the quandaries of colonial life in New Zealand through
the story of one family’s move from Wellington to a small rural
town, this masterful novella is partially autobiographical, and parts
of it were incorporated into Mansfield’s acclaimed story “Prelude.”
Though the Burnell family relocates a scant six miles from the city,
the move is far from inconsequential; in fact, it causes a major
disruption to their former way of life. A mysterious aloe plant
and the slaughtering of a duck in their well-kept yard suggest
that the family is concealing brutality and ignorance of another
way of life that was rejected—that of the Maoris, the rightful
owners of the colonized land. The novella describes the author’s
sense of unease from belonging to the group of invaders.
Traducida al castellano por primera vez, esta novela corta de
Henry James es un estupendo ejemplo de la narrativa del escritor,
con enfrentamientos de personajes y argumentos en los que se
muestran las diferencias y similitudes entre las clases sociales. La
historia, a caballo entre los Estados Unidos y Europa como el
propio James, presenta los conflictos que se producen en las relaciones matrimoniales, los noviazgos y las relaciones familiares.
Mientras la envidia impulsa a la protagonista Adela a intentar
destruir la relación entre su padre recién enviudado y la ostentosa
señora Churchley, el matrimonio secreto de su hermano Godfrey
se derrumba.
Henry James was a novelist, a playwright, and a literary critic.
He is regarded as one of the key figures of literary realism. His
works include The Beast in the Jungle, The Portrait of a Lady,
and The Turn of the Screw.

Dramatizando las disyuntivas de la vida colonial en Nueva
Zelanda a través de la narración de la mudanza de una familia
desde Wellington a un pueblo rural, esta magistral novela corta
es parcialmente autobiográfica, y algunas partes de la obra se
incorporaron en el cuento aclamado de Mansfield, “Preludio.”
Aunque la familia Burnell se muda apenas a seis millas de la ciudad, el movimiento no es intrascendente; de hecho, provoca una
ruptura con su anterior forma de vida. Una misteriosa planta de
áloe y un pato sacrificado en su bien cuidado patio sugieren que
la familia oculta la brutalidad y una ignorancia hacia otra forma
de vida que fue negada—la de los maoríes, legítimos dueños de
aquellas tierras colonizadas. La novela describe el desasosiego de
la autora por su pertenencia a la casta de los invasores.
Katherine Mansfield was a prominent modernist writer, widely

La mesa de madera de manzano / Nochebuena
Christmas Eve, a translation from the Russian
El Paraíso de los solteros y
Nikolái Gógol
el Tártaro de las doncellas
Translations of “The Apple-Tree Table” and “The Paradise
of Bachelors and the Tartarus of Maids”
Herman Melville
Presented together in this collection are two stories by Herman
Melville: a satire on spiritualism that examines the conflicting
impressions of the members of a family of a bug-infested table
and a reflection on the contrast between the pleasant life of rich
bachelors and the alienation of enslaved young women. In “The
Apple-Tree Table,” strange sounds come from a table before
150-year-old bugs begin to emerge from it. “The Paradise of
Bachelors and the Tartarus of Maids” points out the outrageous
differences between two groups by juxtaposing the lavish dinner
of a group of single men in London with a visit to a paper factory
where young women toil under subhuman conditions.
Presentados juntos en esta recopilación hay dos cuentos de
Herman Melville: una sátira del espiritismo que examina las
opiniones divididas de los miembros de una familia sobre una
mesa infestada de insectos y una reflexión sobre el contraste
entre la vida placentera de los ricos solteros y la alienación de las
jóvenes esclavizadas. En “La mesa de madera de manzano,” una
mesa emite un extraño crujido antes de que insectos de 150 años
emanen de ella. “El Paraíso de los solteros y el Tártaro de las
doncellas” muestra las inauditas diferencias entre dos grupos,
yuxtaponiendo una cena pantagruélica con solteros en Londres
con una visita a una fábrica de papel en la que trabajan mujeres
jóvenes en condiciones infrahumanas.

A surreal, magical world serves as the backdrop for an eternal
struggle between good and evil in Nikolai Gogol’s tale that centers on a young man’s love and quest for the most beautiful
woman in his Ukrainian village. On Christmas Eve in the idyllic
town of Dikanka, beautiful yet arrogant Oksana offers her heart
to whoever can get her the czarina’s slippers, and Vakula, the
town’s blacksmith, enlists the help of the devil—who holds a
grudge against him for painting unflattering portraits of him in
the church—to retrieve the slippers from Saint Petersburg. The
book vividly portrays Ukrainian folklore and typical customs
and culture from Gogol’s era.
Un mundo surrealista y mágico sirve como telón de fondo para
una lucha eterna entre el bien y el mal en este cuento de Nikolái
Gógol que se centra en el amor de un muchacho por la mujer
más bella de su pueblito ucraniano y su misión de ganarla. En la
última noche antes de la Navidad en la idílica aldea de Dikanka,
la bella pero altiva Oksana le ofrece su corazón a quien pueda
conseguirle los zapatos de la zarina, y Vakula, el herrero del
pueblo, contrata la ayuda del demonio—quien le guarda rencor
por pintar retratos poco favorecedores de él en la iglesia—para
conseguir los zapatos de San Petersburgo. El libro vívidamente
retrata el folclore ucraniano y las típicas tradiciones y culturas de
la época de Gógol.
Nikolái Gógol was one of the leading figures in 19th-century

known for his satirical masterpiece Dead Souls and humorous
plays and short stories such as “The Government Inspector” and
“The Overcoat.”

Respirar por la herida
Escuela de rebeldía
Seeing Red
The School of Rebellion
Víctor del Árbol
Salvador Seguí
With a well-concocted plot and an atmosphere of intense pain and
guilt, this novel pushes the main characters’ limits with precision
and psychology. Perhaps God rolls the dice with destiny; or maybe
it’s chance that snatches from people that which they love most; or
it could be that everything that happens is simply the result of people’s actions. These are the thoughts that torment Eduardo, a
painter for whom nothing makes sense anymore after the death of
his wife and daughter. Nothing, that is, until a famous cellist gives
him the biggest challenge of his life: to paint the portrait of a man
of an uncertain past. With each brush stroke, Eduardo opens doors
that were meant to stay shut—doors which, once open, can never
be closed again.
Published 20 days after the assassination of its author—upon
whose life it is based—this novel narrates the life, loves, and
hopes of a young laborer in Catalonia during the first decades
of the 20th century. Between 1914 and 1921 the number of
laborers murdered in Barcelona by employers reached 523, and
in 1923 General Primo de Rivera established a dictatorship and
banned the National Federation of Labor, brutally repressing it.
This is the setting for this tragic and revealing novel, in which
death bears the mark of extreme right-wing gunmen, largely
funded by Catalonian businesses. This book is a gripping read
as well as an enlightening document on pre-Civil War Spain.
Con una trama bien urdida y un ambiente de dolor y culpa descarnada, esta novela desborda los límites de sus protagonistas con precisión y psicología. Quizás Dios juega a los dados con el destino; o
tal vez sea el azar el que les arrebate a las personas aquello que más
aman; o puede que todo lo que ocurre sea simplemente el resultado
de los actos de la gente. Estos son los pensamientos que atormentan a Eduardo, un pintor para quien nada tiene sentido tras la
muerte de su mujer y su hija. Nada, es decir, hasta que una famosa
violoncelista le encarga el mayor reto de su vida: pintar el retrato de
un hombre de pasado incierto. Con cada pincelada, Eduardo abre
puertas que habría sido mejor mantener cerradas—puertas que,
una vez abiertas, nunca podrán volver a estar cerradas.
Publicada 20 días después del asesinato de su autor—en cuya
vida está basada—esta novela narra la vida, los amores y los
anhelos de un joven obrero en la Cataluña de las primeras
décadas del siglo XX. Entre 1914 y 1921 el número de obreros
asesinados en Barcelona por la patronal ascendió a 523, y en
1923 el general Primo de Rivera estableció la dictadura y prohibió la Confederación Nacional del Trabajo, reprimiéndola
ferozmente. En este ambiente se desarrolla la trama de esta
trágica y reveladora novela, donde la muerte tiene el sello de los
pistoleros de la extrema derecha, pagados en gran parte de la
patronal catalana. Este libro es una lectura absorbente al igual
que un documento esclarecedor sobre España en los años antes
de la Guerra Civil española.
Víctor del Árbol is a novelist and a 20-year veteran of the Police
of the Generalitat of Catalonia. He is the author of El abismo de
los sueños, El peso de los muertos, and La tristeza del samurái,
which won the 2012 European Crime Fiction Prize for best noir
novel of the year.
Salvador Seguí was one of the leaders of the Catalan anarcho-syndicalist movement in Barcelona during the early 20th century who
believed in the education of the working class and opposed paramilitary action. He was assassinated in 1923 by gunmen working
for a government-protected Catalan employers’ organization.

Los estratos
La transmigración de los cuerpos
The Strata
The Transmigration of Bodies
Juan Cárdenas
Yuri Herrera
Far from the preexisting models that deal with the realities of
Latin America with a stark, apocalyptic realism or a trivial celebration of the exotic, this novel is radical support for literature
devoted to writing, understood to mean the transformation of
the everyday experience and as a reflection on the way in which
personal, social, and historical stories are constructed. Through
one voice constantly interrupted by many others, it tells the story
of a man besieged by the need to reconstruct a vague memory
from his childhood, while essential elements of his private life
collapse with each passing day. The book is a philosophical
exploration of the peculiar forms of desire typical of late capitalism in a society as unequal and contradictory as Colombia’s in
the beginning of the 21st century.
“Herrera shows promising signs of narrative conviction, precise
and careful writing, a refined ear for group speech, and a marked
poetic will.”
—El Mundo on Trabajos del reino
Lejos de los modelos preestablecidos que abordan las realidades
de América Latina desde el tremendismo apocalíptico o la banal
celebración de lo exótico, esta novela es una apuesta radical por
una literatura apegada a la escritura, entendida como la transformación de la experiencia cotidiana y como reflexión sobre la
manera en que se construyen los relatos personales, sociales e
históricos. A través de una voz intervenida constantemente por
muchas otras, cuenta la historia de un hombre asediado por la
necesidad de reconstruir un recuerdo impreciso de su infancia,
mientras los elementos esenciales de su vida privada se desmoronan con el paso de cada día. El libro es una exploración filosófica
de las particulares formas del deseo propias del capitalismo tardío
en una sociedad tan desigual y contradictoria como la colombiana de comienzos del siglo XXI.

With language that mixes violence and poetry, this crime novel
tells the life of Mexican mobsters and drug dealers and their
relationship with the outside world in the midst of an epidemic.
The action takes place over the course of a single day, in which a
much-desired woman, Thrice Blonde, meets The Rescuer, a man

In this noir novel rife with suspense, a girl is stabbed to death in
the first-floor laundry room of a building that also hosts a
blowout party. Now, four unrelated characters find themselves
caught up in the circumstances surrounding the murder, and as
each recounts their experiences from that night, the reader is
exposed to unique and occasionally contradictory interpretations
of the event. And when the truth is finally revealed, it leads to a
shocking and wholly unexpected climax.
Humor and everyday characters meld in this high-voltage mystery
novel in which the important question is not who the killer is, but
rather who will be the next to die. Blondie gave up crime decades
ago, but his wife’s serious illness has him reconsidering a proposal
from Junior, a local cocaine dealer, to rob the front his bosses
maintain in Gran Canaria. It won’t be difficult to rope in Palmera,
a man long unemployed, and Cora, a high-end escort keenly aware
of her fading charms, for the robbery. The strategy of the
Pekingese dog is to take advantage of its foe’s slip-ups in order to
attack and escape, and the protagonists follow suit when they find
themselves immersed in a wild chase that leaves a bloody trail.
El humor y los personajes del día a día se combinan en esta novela negra de alto voltaje en la que lo importante no es saber
quién es el asesino, sino quién será el próximo en morir. El Rubio
dejó de delinquir hace décadas, pero la grave enfermedad de su
esposa le hace replantearse una proposición de Júnior, un distribuidor local de cocaína, de atracar al testaferro de sus jefes en
Gran Canaria. No le costará seducir a Palmera, un parado de
larga duración, y a Cora, una prostituta de lujo quien sospecha
cercano el momento en el que se esfumen sus encantos, para participar en el asalto. La estrategia del pequinés es mostrarse fiero
y aprovechar cualquier despiste del adversario para atacar y huir,
y los protagonistas harán eso cuando se encuentran inmersos en
una persecución frenética que deja un rastro sangriento.

The Kidnapping of Britney Spears, a translation from the French
of Le ravissement de Britney Spears
Prince Prick: What Is Essential Is Visible to the Eye, for Those
Who Want to See
Jean Rolin
Translated by Luisa Feliu
Pablo Perel
A philosophical fable that parodies and questions—and in turn
goes beyond the proposals of—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The
Little Prince, this light, humorous story is channeled through the
main character’s penis, which becomes a key character with which
the protagonist has conversations throughout the book. When
Adam and Eve are expelled from Eden for acting in collusion, the
union of the genders is broken, splitting into two worlds separated
by competition, submission, and lack of understanding. A young
man sinks into desolation until Prince Prick appears to turn his
heart upside-down, stripping down all at once religion, sex, war,
love, and the existence of the soul.
Una fábula filosófica que parodia y cuestiona—y a su vez va más
allá del planteamiento de—El Principito de Antoine de SaintExupéry, este relato ágil y humorístico se canaliza por el pene del
personaje principal, el cual se convierte en un personaje clave con
el que dialoga el protagonista a lo largo del libro. Cuando Adán y
Eva son expulsados del Edén por actuar en complicidad, la unión
de los géneros se quiebra y se escinde en dos mundos aislados por
la competencia, el sometimiento y la incomprensión. Un hombre
joven se hunde en la desolación hasta que aparece el Príncipe Pito
para darle la vuelta a su corazón, desnudando al mismo tiempo la
religión, el sexo, la guerra, el amor y la existencia del alma.

When Britney Spears begins receiving threats from an alleged
Islamic sect, the French secret service sends one of its own to
Los Angeles to investigate. At first blush, the agent in question
doesn’t seem to be the most qualified: he doesn’t drive, isn’t
interested at all in the entertainment industry, and suffers from
a nervous condition. However, he does everything in his power
to get himself up to date quickly: he infiltrates the world of the
paparazzi, frequents Sunset Boulevard and Rodeo Drive, and
becomes an expert on Britney Spears and on the city’s public
transportation system. Using the famous singer and a comical
detective as a starting point, the author offers his own satirical
take on famous people who are known more for their excesses
and private lives than for their work.
Cuando Britney Spears recibe amenazas de un supuesto grupúsculo
islamista, los servicios secretos franceses envían a Los Ángeles a
uno de sus hombres para investigar el asunto. Así a primera vista, el
agente en cuestión no parece el más adecuado: no conduce, ignora
todo sobre la farándula y sufre de una condición de los nervios. Sin
embargo, hace todo lo posible para ponerse al día rápidamente: se
introduce en el mundo de los paparazzi, frecuenta Sunset Boulevard
y Rodeo Drive y se convierte en un especialista en Britney Spears y
en la red de transporte público de la ciudad. A partir de la figura de
la popular cantante y de un cómico detective, el autor ofrece su
particular visión satírica de unos famosos que son más conocidos
por sus excesos o sus vidas privadas que por su trabajo.

Faithfully portraying life at the time—the country’s political and
moral corruption, the aristocracy, the Church, the horrors of the
Inquisition, the discovery of America, the expulsion of Jewish citizens, and the unification of the kingdoms of Castile and
Aragon—this novel provides a portrait of Queen Isabella I of
Castile, a unique woman who was fundamental to the history of
Spain. In 1464 the kingdom of Castile is in chaos: bandits terrorize travelers and merchants and the nobility and the clergy make
themselves richer at the expense of the starving populace, but
King Henry IV is too weak to restore order. When his enemies
succeed in assassinating him, the specter of a war of succession
looms over Castile until his sister Isabella imposes herself,
becoming a legend in Spain’s history.

IPG – FALL 2013
In the not-too-distant-future, in a country mired in an economic
and social crisis, at a time when thousands of unemployed people crowd into tents in front of corporate offices and incredibly
long lines form in welfare offices and social care centers, the system continues to find ways to exploit the weak for the benefit of
a privileged few in this compelling novel. But in the face of a
group of unscrupulous financiers and politicians united by the
same interest in dominating and controlling society, an anarchist
movement is born out of spontaneous rebellious groups and
gains popular support. Three women in particular face off
against those in power in the midst of the biggest economic crisis
in Spain’s history, one that has surpassed all expectations and in
which most citizens suffer due to decisions made for the benefit
of the most powerful few.
Reproduciendo fielmente las condiciones de vida de la época—la
corrupción política y moral del país, la aristocracia, la Iglesia, los
horrores de la Inquisición, el descubrimiento de América, la
expulsión de los judíos y la unificación de las Coronas de Castilla
y Aragón—esta novela retrata a la reina Isabel I de Castilla, una
mujer singular y fundamental en la historia de España. En 1464
el reino de Castilla se encuentra en una situación caótica: los bandidos tiranizan a viajeros y a comerciantes y la nobleza y el clero
se enriquecen a costa del hambriento pueblo, pero el rey Enrique
es demasiado blando para poder restablecer el orden. Cuando sus
enemigos logran asesinarle, el espectro de una guerra de sucesión
se cierne sobre Castilla hasta que su hermana Isabel logra imponerse, llegando a convertirse en leyenda de la historia española.
En un futuro cercano, en un país convulso por la crisis económica
y social, mientras miles de parados se apiñan en tiendas de campaña frente a las principales instituciones y larguísimas colas se
forman en las oficinas de empleo y centros de atención social, el
sistema sigue consiguiendo maneras de explotar a los débiles para
generar más riqueza para unos pocos en esta absorbente novela.
Pero frente a un grupo de financieros y políticos sin escrúpulos
unidos por el mismo interés de dominar y controlar la sociedad,
un movimiento antisistema nace de los grupos espontáneos de
indignados y goza de apoyo popular. Tres mujeres en particular se
enfrentan al poder en el marco de la peor crisis económica de la
historia de España, una que ha desbordado todas las expectativas
y en la que muchos ciudadanos sufren por los manejos en favor
de los intereses financieros y políticos de los más poderosos.

his luck at the wheel of a taxi cab that becomes a sort of cave of

novel in which he inadvertently becomes the protagonist. This

Immersed in an environment full of excessive sensuality and
hedonism, the protagonist fluctuates between dreams and nightmares in this illustrated novel in which ingenuity and love, cruelty
and death, and malice and helplessness all coexist. In a world not
too unlike this one, a cyclical and absurd war looms over people
obsessed with collecting the most colorful and useless of objects.
Under the despotic governance of the “fat man,” an army of
extravagant servants and cruel guardians serve the powerful elite
who are only concerned with satisfying their basest instincts.

IPG – FALL 2013
Art history scholar Imma Julián discusses a wide range of topics
with the great Spanish painter Antoni Tàpies in this collection of
candid dialogues that takes readers into the artist’s mind. The conversations span the period from the mid-1970s to recent times and
center on experiences and personal and shared memories from the
dramatic postwar years to the arrival of democracy in Spain. What
emerges is a portrait of a man who, despite having achieved international acclaim and success, was wholly dedicated to representing the
humblest urban landscape, searching his surroundings and within
himself for the elements necessary to communicate with his contemporaries through a unique and highly individualistic language.
La erudita de la historia del arte Imma Julián conversa con el
gran pintor español Antoni Tàpies acerca de una amplia gama de
temas en esta recopilación de diálogos cándidos que adentra al
lector en la mente del artista. Las conversaciones abarcan el periodo desde mediados de los años 70 hasta fechas recientes y se
centran en vivencias y recuerdos personales o compartidos desde
los dramáticos años de la posguerra hasta la llegada de la democracia a España. Lo que emerge es un retrato de un hombre que, a
pesar de haber logrado la aclamación y el éxito internacional,
estaba completamente dedicado a la representación del paisaje
urbano más humilde, buscando a su alrededor y dentro de sí
mismo los elementos necesarios para la comunicación con sus
contemporáneos a través de un lenguaje único y personalísimo.

An imaginative extension of contemporary Latin American fiction,
this graphic novel touches on universal themes—death, friendship,
love, and others—from a uniquely feminine perspective. On her
surreal adventures, the protagonist encounters a ghost in the
house, time travel, snow that bears a striking resemblance to
lemon ice cream, and even a meeting with Death. Some panels
include dialogue, while others forgo it for a purely visual impact.
In either case, the witty and tender narrative injects magic and
innocence into a world of danger and wonder, and encourages
readers to overcome adversity with humor and a positive frame
of mind.
Una extensión imaginativa de la narrativa latinoamericana
contemporánea, esta novela gráfica abarca temas universales—
la muerte, la amistad, el amor y otros—desde una perspectiva
singularmente femenina. En sus aventuras surrealistas, la protagonista se encuentra con un fantasma en la casa, un viaje en
el tiempo, nieve que tiene una apariencia muy parecida a la del
helado de limón y hasta a la Muerte. Algunas de las viñetas
incluyen diálogo, otras lo renuncian a favor de un impacto
puramente visual. En ambos casos, la narrativa ingeniosa y
tierna introduce la magia e inocencia en un mundo de peligro
y maravillas y anima al lector a superar la adversidad con
humor y de buen talante.

The highbrow and lowbrow collide in unique and surprising ways
in this graphic novel collection of four genre-mixing stories as
funny as they are exemplary. The styles are merged in a masterful
way—Latin American dictators blend with science fiction, comedy
with gore—but youth boredom and the desire for happiness rise
above all else. A smoking, drinking Superman who seems to be
more a result of dirty realism than magic realism; bored teenagers
who entertain themselves by killing zombies or who flee to Earth
on their way to Mars; post-adolescent love and rites of passage;
and a combination of sadness and action fill the pages of this book.
La alta y la baja cultura chocan de un modo único y sorprendente
en esta recopilación de cuatro historias tan divertidas como
ejemplarizantes que mezclan géneros. Los estilos se funden de
manera magistral—dictadores latinoamericanos combinan con
la ciencia ficción, la comedia con lo sangriento—pero encima de
todo se alzan el tedio juvenil y el anhelo de felicidad. Un
Supermán fumador y borracho que parece más fruto del realismo sucio que del realismo mágico; jóvenes aburridos que se
entretienen matando zombis o que huyen de la Tierra camino de
Marte; el amor post-adolescente y los ritos de paso; y una combinación de melancolía y acción llenan las páginas de este libro.

With a wealth of information on the life of Christopher Columbus,
including hundreds of photographs and illustrations, this is a
definitive and thorough biography of the venerated and occasionally controversial explorer. The book focuses on every stage of
Columbus’s life: his childhood in Genoa; the years he spent in
Lisbon; his quest to find a benefactor and the subsequent four
voyages to the New World; the allegations of corruption during
his governorship of the island of Hispaniola and his ignominious
arrest; and his final years and death. At each stage, his accomplishments and actions are placed within the larger sociopolitical and
cultural context of the time period in which he lived.

su búsqueda de un patrocinador y los subsiguientes cuatro viajes
al Nuevo Mundo; las alegaciones de corrupción durante su gobernación de La Española y su ignominiosa detención; y sus últimos
años y muerte. En cada etapa, sus logros y acciones se consideran

Michael Bird
Demonstrating how new developments in various materials—oilbased paint, plastics, paint tubes—and technology—paper, photography, welding—have radically changed the way art is
produced, this illuminating book draws parallels between those
changes and others that have occurred within a wider cultural
framework. The study of optics and anatomy, for example, as
well as more conceptual concerns, such as chance and ephemerality, are all discussed as ideas that have influenced art throughout
its history, from the Paleolithic Age through ancient civilizations,
the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and into modern times.
Demostrando cómo nuevos desarrollos en diferentes materiales—
óleos, plásticos, tubos de pintura—y tecnologías—el papel, la
fotografía, la soldadura—han cambiado radicalmente la manera en
la cual se produce el arte, este libro revelador dibuja paralelos entre
esos cambios y otros que han ocurrido dentro de un marco cultural
más amplio. Por ejemplo, el estudio de la óptica y la anatomía,
además de temas más conceptuales tales como el azar y lo efímero,
son discutidos como ideas que han influenciado el arte a lo largo de
su historia, desde la época paleolítica y a través de las civilizaciones
antiguas, la Edad Media y el Renacimiento hasta la época moderna.

Transporting readers to a time when fantasy and reality regularly
overlapped, this guide features a fascinating mix of gods, heroes,
monsters, and magicians. Some, such as Agamemnon and

Narcissus—were invented to explain natural phenomena and
illustrate key morals and themes. Whatever the case, readers will
be captivated by these tales of legendary deeds, bloody battles,
and great tragedies.
Focused primarily on Greek and Roman mythology, this reference also includes brief examinations of legends from the
Egyptian, German, Hindu, and Norse cultures, detailing the
deeds of deities from many global traditions. Photographs of
some of the most important works of art in which these gods
and goddesses are depicted are also included, accompanied by

Lluís Duch
Describing the increasing importance of the media as a means of
communicating religious doctrine, this book contends that the way
information is disseminated is nearly as vital as the message itself.
The author argues that religions do not effectively communicate
their beliefs and that religious communities suffer from a lack of
quality of their broadcasts. The examination explores the concept
of tradition, the importance of symbols, the difference between
information and communication, the crisis of confidence in religious institutions, the diminishment of the sacred, and the revolution of belief. The future of religion depends on a direct manner of
communication and appropriate contextualization, and this book
provides necessary information for reaching out to believers.
Describiendo la creciente importancia de los medios de comunicación para comunicar la doctrina religiosa, este libro sostiene que
la manera en que la información se disemina es casi tan vital como
el propio mensaje. El autor arguye que religiones no transmiten
efectivamente sus creencias y que las comunidades religiosas sufren
por falta de calidad de sus transmisiones. El análisis explora el concepto de tradición, la importancia de símbolos, la diferencia entre
información y comunicación, la crisis de confianza en las instituciones religiosas, la erosión de lo sagrado y la revolución de lo
creíble. El futuro de la religión depende de un modo directo de la
comunicación y una oportuna contextualización, y este libro proporciona la información necesaria para alcanzar a los creyentes.
Lluís Duch is an author, a translator, an anthropologist, a theologian, a Montserrat monk, and a former professor. He has

Buddhism: A Historical and Philosophical Perspective
Jean-Jacques Lafaye
Translated by Josep Forment
Through articles, correspondence, manifestos, and fragments
from his autobiography, Stefan Zweig clearly and forcefully
demonstrates his position as a Jew and his own way of understanding Judaism in this collection, augmented by descriptions
and analyses from Jean-Jacques Lafaye. The book delves into one
of the most decisive aspects of the prolific writer’s thoughts and
life, and Zweig’s writings show his passion for human beings and
his argument that to be Jewish is nothing more than a form of
humanism and a universal way of being—a spiritual and cultural
claim rather than a reductive hypothesis.
A través de artículos, correspondencia, manifiestos y fragmentos
concretos de su autobiografía, Stefan Zweig demuestra de manera
clara y contundente su posición como judío y su propia forma de
entender el judaísmo en esta recopilación, aumentada por descripciones y análisis de Jean-Jacques Lafaye. El libro ahonda en uno
de los aspectos más decisivos del pensamiento y de la vida del
escritor prolífico, y los escritos de Zweig muestra su pasión por el
ser humano y su argumento de que ser judío no es otra cosa que
una forma de humanismo y un modo de ser universal—una
reivindicación espiritual y cultural más que un postulado reductor.

Using the central concept of dependent origination—the belief that
nothing exists independently of other things—as a springboard,
this study explores the myriad interpretations of this teaching
throughout Buddhism’s long history. In addition to an unprecedented examination of the original intention of this concept in the
philosophical and spiritual context of fifth-century India, the
author also discusses little-known or poorly interpreted events in
the subsequent evolution of Buddhism, including the earliest councils and schisms within the religion and the development of
Mahayana Buddhism, the largest current major tradition in
Buddhism. The book ends with several reflections on the possible
role Buddhism can play in modern-day society, basing itself on the
ideas of contemporary philosophers.
Tomando como punto de partida el concepto central de la originación dependiente—la creencia que nada existe independientemente de otras cosas—este estudio explora el gran número de
interpretaciones de esta enseñanza a lo largo de la larga historia
del budismo. Aparte de una clarificación sin precedentes de la
intención original de este concepto en el contexto de la filosofía y
espiritualidad india del siglo V a. C., el autor recorre episodios
poco conocidos o no siempre bien interpretados de la historia
posterior, incluyendo los primeros concilios y cismas dentro de la
religión y el desarrollo del mahayana, la principal tradición actual
del budismo. El libro termina con unas reflexiones acerca del
posible papel del budismo en la sociedad moderna a partir de las
ideas de filósofos contemporáneos.

Jacques Attali
B. K. S. Iyengar
Preface by Yehudi Menuhin
An exhaustive biography of the man still considered the conscience of the nation of India, this exploration of Mohandas
Gandhi’s life stretches from his childhood among the Gujarati
merchants, through his time as a student in England, his years as
a lawyer in South Africa, and his return to the Indian subcontinent and subsequent anticolonialist and nonviolent activities, to,
ultimately, his assassination in 1948. Attali avoids both hagiography and hatchet job, presenting rather an objective, complete
portrait of a man who has influenced leaders but who was not
without his own weaknesses and contradictions.
Written by Patanjali more than 2,000 years ago, this collection
of sutras is the earliest and most revered holy reference on the
practice of yoga, containing nearly 200 aphorisms filled with
wisdom on the practice. In this expanded edition, renowned
yoga instructor B. K. S. Iyengar translates the sutras from the
original Sanskrit and provides his own insightful commentary
for the modern reader. Readers learn how they can transform
themselves through the practice of yoga, gradually developing
their body, emotions, and mind to become spiritually evolved.
Un biografía exhaustiva del hombre todavía considerado como la
conciencia de la nación de la India, esta exploración de la vida de
Mohandas Gandhi abarca el periodo desde su infancia entre los
comerciantes de Gujarat, pasando por sus estudios en Inglaterra,
sus años de abogado en Sudáfrica y su regreso al subcontinente
indio y subsiguiente acción anticolonial y no violenta, hasta llegar,
finalmente, a su asesinato en 1948. Attali cae ni en la adulación ni
en la crítica destructiva, presentando más bien un retrato objetivo
y completo de un hombre que influyó líderes pero que también
tenía sus faltas y contradicciones.
Jacques Attali is a French civil servant, an economist, and a writer.
He is a former adviser to French president François Mitterand, the

its deeper applications, such as confronting suffering, stabilizing
emotions, and achieving peace of mind and heart.

emociones y conseguir la paz de mente y corazón.

We Are Quantum Energy: The Quantum Secret and the
Awakening of the Energies
Karen L. French
Jorge Blaschke
Delving deep into the nature of reality, this book looks at the
amazing process of creation to show how simple shapes and
numbers, operating as universal principles through such phenomena as sound and light, create all the infinite forms of life. The
beginning of the book focuses on numbers and shapes, explaining
that geometry is implicated at every level in the nature of matter
itself, and the middle describes how sound and light come into
play. The final part draws together all of these themes to show
how this enhanced understanding of the nature of reality and creation can offer readers a gateway to new levels of awareness.
This remarkable analysis examines the link between quantum
physics and spiritual perception and describes a revolutionary
method of harnessing energy to reach health, personal, and
social objectives. Using a practical approach that combines the
classic and latest trends in personal development, this useful
examination includes a number of practical exercises that
explain how to awaken energy, understand the world, and
change ways of thinking.
Indagando profundamente en la naturaleza de la realidad, este
libro explora el impresionante proceso de la creación para
mostrar cómo simples formas y números, operando como principios universales mediante fenómenos como el sonido y la
luz, crean todas las formas infinitas de la vida. El inicio del
libro se enfoca sobre los números y las formas, explicando
cómo la geometría está implicada a cada nivel de la naturaleza
de la materia misma, y en el medio se describe cómo el sonido
y la luz entran en juego. La última parte une todos estos temas
para mostrar cómo este entendimiento realzado de la naturaleza de la realidad y de la creación puede ofrecerle al lector
una entrada a nuevos niveles de conocimiento.

23 Shades of Desire, a translation from the French of Pulsions

Más allá de Cincuenta sombras de Grey
Corine Allouch and Clara Basteh
Susanna Mann
In this collection of true stories, 23 women narrate their
wildest erotic adventures. Maïna Lecherbonier likes associating scandal with pleasure, Sophie Cadalen is skilled at erotic
games, and Françoise Rey allows herself everything in a summer garden. Through the array of contributors’ experiences,
readers see that any everyday situation can become a moment
of extreme sexuality.
Exploring the road to pleasure through 50 techniques related to
sadomasochism, from the tamest to the wildest, this book considers a
world that transcends the merely sexual in order to reach a higher
plane where the lines between tenderness, sadism, and romance are
blurred. The author has traveled to dozens of clubs around Europe in
order to collect some of the most debauched practices and fantasies
being enacted, and she offers readers a journey through BDSM that is
as much a sharing of sexual techniques as it is a narration of female
sexual confessions. From fetishism to anal sex, from biting and
scratching to whipping, from anal games to multiple orgasms, and
from Turkish delights to electrosex, this guide to the world of sadomasochism is indispensable for anyone looking to explore new frontiers in the bedroom.
En esta colección de relatos verídicos, 23 mujeres narran sus

de las diferentes contribuyentes, el lector ve que cualquier
situación cotidiana puede transformarse en un instante de
sensualidad extrema.

Awakening the Bipolar Gift: A Path Toward Recovery
from Emotional Instability
Eduardo H. Grecco
Prologue by José Luis Cabouli
An enlightened and unique approach to bipolar therapy, this
analysis argues that, rather than using external tools and methods
to find equilibrium between mania and depression, a more effective
therapeutic approach focuses on the patient’s talents and innate
strengths. The author advocates for a multidisciplinary treatment
for bipolar disorder, one that makes use of the patient’s creativity,
body movement, and emotional ties. The vision of psychopathology that is presented is an overwhelmingly positive one that will
be of use for both patients as well as therapists.
Una perspectiva cultivada y única hacia la terapia para la
bipolaridad, este análisis arguye que, en vez de usar métodos y
herramientas externas para conseguir un equilibrio entre la
manía y la depresión, es mejor un enfoque terapéutico que se
centra en los talentos y las fuerzas autocurativas interiores del
paciente. El autor propone un tratamiento multidisciplinario
para afrontar la bipolaridad que apela a la creatividad, al
movimiento del cuerpo y a los vínculos afectivos. Se trata de
una visión sumamente positiva de la psicopatología que será
de gran utilidad tanto para los pacientes como para terapeutas.

Javier Vicencio
Focusing on couples therapy, a type of consultation that has
become more and more common for psychologists, this book
proposes a series of road maps that lead toward a diagnosis and
aid in the understanding of a couple’s everyday life. The author
analyzes the experience of being part of a couple and explores
the concept of a couple as it exists in the collective imagination,
influenced as it is by television and film. He then provides a
series of elements that serve in the development of a guide that
aids therapists in their practice as well as couples looking to
reflect on and transform themselves.

idea de pareja que maneja el imaginario colectivo, influida por la

Marcos teóricos para el trabajo terapéutico
Understanding the Couple: Theoretical Frameworks for Therapy
Compiled by Luz de Lourdes Eguiluz
Using the theoretical approaches that have guided their practices as
a springboard, eight Latin-American therapists review the changes
in behavioral patterns between men and women that have taken
place in recent years, as well as what it means to be a therapist in
the modern day. Among the topics explored in this book are the
patriarchal and matriarchal histories of couples in Mexican society,
spirituality in the development of the marital relationship, lust and
love in a narcissistic postmodernity, overcoming the crisis of infidelity, new ways of living as a couple, and the help that a therapist
can provide. This book proves to be an invaluable resource for
couples looking to better their understanding of themselves, as
well as for the therapists that seek to help them.
Usando como punto de partida los enfoques teóricos que han guiado su práctica, ocho terapeutas latinoamericanos revisan tanto los
cambios en los patrones de relación de hombres y mujeres que han
ocurrido en los últimos años así como lo que significa ser terapeuta
en la actualidad. Entre los temas explorados en este libro se encuentran las historias patriarcal y matriarcal de la pareja en la sociedad
mexicana, la espiritualidad en el crecimiento de la relación conyugal, el enamoramiento y el amor en una posmodernidad narcisista,
la superación de la crisis de infidelidad, las nuevas formas de vida
en pareja y la ayuda que puede ofrecer un terapeuta. Este libro
resulta un recurso invaluable tanto para la pareja que busca
mejorar su comprensión de sí misma como para el terapeuta que
busca ayudarle.

Facing Suicide: Understanding and Treating It
What Can We Do to Prevent Suicide?
Luz de Lourdes Eguiluz
Luz de Lourdes Eguiluz, Martha Hermelinda Córdova,
and José Carlos Rosales
Included in this invaluable book is the work of several investigators
and therapists who study suicide within their different specialties in
order to learn what can be done to prevent it. These specialists seek
action for the attention to, prevention of, and treatment for suicide,
an act that, as a result of multiple investigations on the topic, is
now understood to be not a simple action, but a collection of
behaviors. Due to the fact that suicidal behavior is comprised of a
variety of factors—biological, cultural, economic, genetic, political,
social, psychological, and psychiatric—studying suicide requires
one or several interdisciplinary approaches, some of which are
explored in the indispensable resource.
Different types of studies—historical, psychosocial, theoretical,
and case studies—which seek to delve into analyzing and finding
solutions for the multiple motivations that lead to suicide make
up this illuminating book. Its collaborators, all of them dedicated
to a different discipline and committed to the study and confrontation of the problem of suicide, seek to understand it and
learn how to respond to it in an opportune, professional, and
serious manner. With the authors’ help and the studies they present, readers will learn how to better face suicide, whether in their
own lives or while trying to help their loved ones.
Incluido en este valioso libro está el trabajo de varios investigadores y terapeutas que desde sus distintas especialidades estudian el suicidio para saber qué se puede hacer para prevenirlo. Estos
especialistas buscan acciones para la atención, prevención y
tratamiento del suicidio, un acto que, como resultado de múltiples
investigaciones realizadas sobre el tema, se entiende hoy no como
una acción simple, sino como una agrupación de comportamientos. Al estar el comportamiento suicida conformado por una diversidad de factores—biológicos, culturales, económicos, genéticos,
políticos, sociales, psicológicos y psiquiátricos—estudiar el suicidio
exige una o varias aproximaciones interdisciplinarias, algunas de
las cuales se exploran en este indispensable recurso.

Games for Children with Special Educational Needs
Mónica Montes Ayala and María Auxilio Castro García
Addressing preschool and elementary school teachers, and
reclaiming the theory of multiple intelligences, two teachers
show how to develop the bodily-kinesthetic, spatial, linguistic,
logical-mathematical, musical, and personal intelligences of their
students with special needs. Each teacher, according to whichever
intelligence he seeks to develop in his students at a given time,
can select the appropriate game based on the information the
authors provide for each one: its purpose, the materials needed
to carry it out, and evaluation criteria. This extremely useful
resource is based on the experiences of teachers who are specialized in the field of special needs education and is easy to read
and put into practice.
Dirigiéndose a maestros de educación preescolar y primaria, y
retomando la teoría de las inteligencias múltiples, dos maestras
muestran cómo desarrollar las inteligencias cinestésico-corporal,
espacial, lingüística, lógico-matemática, musical y personal de los
alumnos con necesidades educativas especiales. Cada maestro, de
acuerdo con la inteligencia que busca desarrollar en sus alumnos
en el momento, puede escoger el juego apropiado valiéndose de
la información que proporcionen las autoras para cada uno: su
propósito, los materiales necesarios para llevarlo a cabo y criterios de evaluación. Este recurso sumamente útil está basado en la
experiencia de maestros especializados en la educación de necesidades especiales, es fácil de leer y de llevar a la práctica.

In this story that teaches children to value nature and to observe
the changing seasons, Lena finds a frog in the garden pond whom
she names Rony. Rony likes to hide and reappear in unexpected
places. When winter comes, Rony disappears one day. When
spring arrives, Lena hears croaking and decides to investigate. She
not only finds Rony but also many other frogs—in the water, on
the leaves, and even on the pile of rocks—everywhere.
It is time to get up, and the children are excited to spend the
entire day playing. With a box or a cardboard tube, they become
characters such as pirates, singers, and astronauts and discover
what they would like to be when they grow up.
En esta historia que enseña a valorar la naturaleza y observar los

aparecer después en un lugar inesperado. Durante el invierno,

John is different. When other children began learning how to
speak, John didn’t. As he grew older, whenever he had to ask
for something or wanted to express his feelings, he would simply whistle. John began using different kinds of whistles for
different kinds of reasons. But everything changed the day he
met Clara, a little girl with dark, dark eyes. This is a tender
story that reminds readers that music is the true language of
the soul, and that people’s differences can be resolved through
good intentions and friendship.
Juan es diferente. Cuando los otros niños comenzaron a aprender
a hablar, Juan no lo hizo. Mientras fue creciendo, cada vez que
tenía que pedir algo o expresar sus sentimientos, simplemente silbaba. Juan comenzó a usar diferentes tipos de silbidos para diferentes razones. Pero todo cambió el día que conoció a Clara, una
niña con ojos muy, muy oscuros. Ésta es una historia tierna que le
recuerda al lector que la música es el lenguaje verdadero del alma,
y que las diferencias entre las personas pueden ser superadas
mediante buenas intenciones y amistad.

Exploring the themes of friendship and bullying, this heartwarming
picture book features a young girl with a friend named Dorothy.
Dorothy is not like the other children at school: she is very big,
always drops crumbs when she eats, and birds often land on her
head without her realizing it. The narrator’s other friends don’t
accept Dorothy and exclude her from their adventures, encouraging
the narrator to do the same. But the narrator doesn’t give into their
bullying; she loves that Dorothy is different, and that’s what makes
Dorothy her best friend.
Explorando los temas de la amistad y la intimidación, este
enternecedor libro ilustrado presenta una niña con una amiga llamada Dorothy. Dorothy no es como los otros niños en el colegio:
es muy grande, siempre deja caer migajas cuando come y pájaros
suelen aterrizar sobre su cabeza sin que ella se de cuenta. Los otros
amigos de la narradora no aceptan a Dorothy y la excluyen de sus
aventuras, alentando a la narradora a hacer lo mismo. Pero la narradora no se rinde frente a sus intimidaciones; a ella le encanta que
Dorothy es diferente, y es por eso que Dorothy es su mejor amiga.

A woman drives a tractor through town and, thanks to the tractor’s
noisy engine, can’t hear all the things people say about her as she
drives by. They comment on her clothes and her hair, but mostly
they seem confused as to why a woman is driving a tractor in the
first place. A fun, original tale about turning a deaf ear to negativity
and prejudice, this story will inspire children to embrace who they
are and to believe they can grow up to be anything they want to be.
Kuku the chicken and Mwewe the eagle have been the very best of
friends their entire lives. But one day, vain Kuku rips her favorite
dress and begs Mwewe to let her borrow a needle that is also a
family heirloom. Mwewe lends her friend the needle, trusting her
to care for it like the cherished possession it is. But when Kuku
carelessly loses the needle, Kuku and Mwewe’s life-long friendship
comes to a sad end. A wonderful fable inspired by an old Swahili
legend, this story teaches children the importance of taking
responsibility for their actions.
Una mujer conduce un tractor por el pueblo y, gracias a lo ruidoso
que es el motor del tractor, no logra escuchar lo que dice la gente
sobre ella. Hacen comentarios sobre su ropa y su pelo, pero más
que nada parecen estar confundidos por el hecho de que una
mujer esté conduciendo un tractor. Un divertido y original cuento
sobre hacer oídos sordos hacia la negatividad y los prejuicios, esta
historia inspirará a los niños a aceptarse como son y a creer que
pueden ser lo que deseen cuando crezcan.

The Story of the Three Wise Men: (Told Right)
Raquel Díaz Reguera
Dominique Jorand
Illustrations by Pablo Rulfo
With a fun, new approach to storytelling, this picture book tells
the story of the three wise men. Meant to be an interactive
experience, it’s told in alternating voices by an adult narrator
and the children being read to. Every time the narrator slips up
and makes a mistake in this well-known tale, the children stop
being mere listeners or readers: they interject to correct the narrator and thus become storytellers themselves. A great book for
story time, it engages children and encourages them to become
active participants.
Con un acercamiento divertido y nuevo a la narración de cuentos,
este libro ilustrado relata la historia de los tres Reyes Magos. Con
la intención de ser una experiencia interactiva, la narración del
cuento alterna entre la voz del narrador adulto y la de los niños a
quienes se lo está contando. Cada vez que el narrador se equivoca
y comete un error contando esta tan conocida historia, los niños
dejan de ser meros oyentes o lectores: interrumpen para corregir
al narrador y así se convierten en narradores ellos mismos. Un
excelente libro para la hora de lectura, capta la atención de los
niños y los anima a convertirse en participantes activos.

In this unique tale that combines dark humor with hair-raising
horror, a boy hears a disconcerting sound one night and fears
there’s a monster in his bedroom. When he investigates the noise,
what he discovers isn’t a monster, but a skeleton who’s cold and
whose bones shiver and clack. When skeletons are cold, however,
they can only be warmed by one kind of coat: human skin. The
thieving skeleton steals the boy’s flesh to warm himself, and now
the boy has become the skeleton, cold and looking for a “coat”
of his own with which to warm himself.
In this fun horror story, one night, a boy fears that there is a
monster under his bed. Working up the courage to investigate,
he warily leans over the side of the bed to peer into the darkness
that consumes the space under it. He discovers there is a monstrous dust bunny lurking, and readers discover an ending that
is as terrifying as it is hilarious.
En este cuento único que combina un humor negro con el horror

embargo, sólo se quita con un tipo de abrigo: la piel humana. Este
esqueleto ladrón roba la piel del niño para calentarse, y ahora es el
niño el que se ha convertido en esqueleto, pasando frío y buscando
un “abrigo” propio con el cual arroparse.

Many evil characters—dragons, monsters, and witches—have

of the true function of evil characters: without them there would
be no need for good characters such as fairies and genies. Written
almost like a hypnotic poem, this illustrated book uses repetition
and cadence to talk about negative things in a positive light, as an
essential part of human nature.

• Part of the El mundo de Rita: Realidad aumentada series, which
includes Rita en el Polo, Rita at the North Pole (9788479429256)
and Rita y los ladrones de tumbas, Rita and the Tomb Raiders
(9788479429270)
Rita and her family go camping, but she spends the entire time
complaining—she doesn’t like outdoor eating, sleeping bags, and
especially not insects. One morning, while in a paddleboat, Rita
paddles too far from shore and is stranded on a small, deserted
island where her survival skills are put to the test. After installing
a simple computer program that is included on the accompanying
CD-ROM, readers use their webcams to reveal three different
three-dimensional animations in the book. Rita introduces the
adventure in the beginning, and in the middle of the book, she
appears again with more information. A final animation allows
children to take a photo of themselves with Rita.
Rita y su familia se van a un camping, pero ella pasa el tiempo
entero refunfuñando—no le gusta comer al aire libre, dormir en un
saco, ni mucho menos ver los insectos. Una mañana, Rita monta un
barco a pedales y, cuando se aleja demasiado de la orilla, termina
en una pequeña isla desierta donde tiene que usar sus escasos recursos para sobrevivir. Después de descargar un sencillo programa
incluido en el CD-ROM acompañante, el lector usa su cámara web
para revelar tres diferentes animaciones tridimensionales en el libro.
En el principo, Rita presenta la aventura, y en las páginas centrales
del libro, vuelve a aparecer con más información. Una animación
final les permite a los niños hacerse una foto con Rita.

In this engaging story about friendship, children meet Potón, a
particularly grouchy and solitary alley cat. One day, after a very
large and satisfying meal, Potón unwittingly takes a nap on a
duck egg. Upon waking, he discovers that the newly hatched
duckling has taken him for his mother, and though Potón wants
nothing to do with the newborn, all of his attempts to abandon
him are in vain. What good can come of this unlikely (and onesided) friendship?

Tol, with the help of a battery-powered doll and a few other

avoid a terrible fate: the box of unpaired socks. This imaginative and fun story is as much an engrossing adventure tale as it
is an ode to the power of the familial bond.

Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer
La vuelta al mundo en 80 días

In this well-known hymn to boyhood, Tom Sawyer grows up in a
small town on the Mississippi and gets into all sorts of childhood
mischief. Tom and his friend Huck Finn venture into a nighttime
graveyard, witness a murder, get lost in a cave, and get involved
in a variety of adventures and mishaps. Beyond the high jinks,
however, the novel also touches on darker themes, as Tom is
forced to learn some difficult lessons about the often cruel and
hypocritical rules that govern adult society.
Although it is now possible to travel the world in hours rather
than weeks, Jules Verne’s classic tale of a race against the clock
has never lost its power to thrill, and it is brought to new life in
this beautifully illustrated and elegantly bound edition. In 1872,
Mr. Phileas Fogg and his manservant, the ever resourceful
Passepartout, ride through India on an elephant, sail the South
China Sea in the teeth of a typhoon, and cross the snow-covered
plains of the American Wild West in order to fulfill a wager that
the journey can be completed in just 80 days.
En esta conocida oda a la niñez, Tom Sawyer se cría en un
pequeño pueblo del Mississippi y se envuelve en todo tipo de
travesura juvenil. Tom y su amigo Huck Finn se aventuran en un
cementerio nocturno, son testigos de un asesinato, se pierden
dentro de una cueva y se envuelven en una serie de aventuras y
percances. Más allá de los correteos, sin embargo, la novela
explora también temas más oscuros, mientras Tom se ve forzado
a aprender lecciones difíciles sobre las reglas a menudas crueles e
hipócritas que rigen la sociedad adulta.
Mark Twain was a humorist, a satirist, a social critic, a lecturer,
and a novelist best remembered for his novels The Adventures of
Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Robert
Ingpen has designed, illustrated, and written more than 100 published works of fiction and nonfiction, among them The Jungle
Book and the centenary edition of Peter Pan and Wendy. In 1986

Aunque es posible hoy en día recorrer el mundo entero en horas en

Passepartout viajan a través de la India a lomos de elefante, cruzan

La pequeña coral de
la señorita Collignon
Ms. Collignon’s Small Chorale
A touching story about the horrors of war and the difficulties of a
life in exile, this novel focuses on the travails of a Catholic Iraqi
family. Dalil is a 13-year-old boy living through the perils of the
Gulf War. Amid the deafening blast of bombs and the constant
threat of missile attacks, only one thing brings him happiness: his
friend Shaima. His love for her is the only bright spot in an existence otherwise plagued by fear and uncertainty. As his family’s
situation becomes untenable, they must decide between remaining
in Iraq or joining Dalil’s uncle in France. The thought of leaving
his homeland behind leaves Dalil with conflicting emotions: on
the one hand, he is desperate to leave behind the war. On the
other, however, he is unable to imagine a life without Shaima.

permite superar un día a día marcado por el miedo y la incertidumbre. A medida que la situación de su familia se hace insostenible,
tienen que decidir entre quedarse en Irak o reunirse en Francia con
el tío de Dalil. La idea de dejar su país natal provoca en Dalil sentimientos encontrados: por un lado, quiere dejar atrás la guerra,
pero por otro, no es capaz de imaginarse su vida sin Shaima.

the administration transfers her to a school in the Raval neighborhood, an area of the city with a substantial immigrant population. Her comfortable life is upended as Ms. Collignon must
learn to deal with students of diverse nationalities and cultures.
Undaunted, she cajoles her students to help her undertake an
ambitious project: the Rainbow Chorale. This heartwarming
story is an excellent introduction to the topic of diversity and
urban life.
Lluís Prats is a professor, a writer, and a television producer. He
is the author of several travel guides and the young adult novels
El laboratorio secreto, El libro azul, and Shackleton.

Como un galgo
A translation of A Greyhound of a Girl (9781407129334)
Roddy Doyle
“Written mostly in dialogue, at which Doyle excels, and populated with
a charming foursome of Irish women, this lovely tale is as much about
overcoming the fear of death as it is about death itself.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review, on the English-language edition
“This elegantly constructed yet beautifully simple story, set in Ireland and
spun with affection by Booker Prize winner Doyle, will be something different for YA readers. These four lilting voices will linger long after the
book is closed.”
—Booklist, starred review, on the English-language edition
“A warm, witty, exquisitely nuanced multigenerational story.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on the English-language edition
“It’s a reminder that Doyle is one of the best writers of dialogue there has
ever been.”
—Guardian, on the English-language edition
• Author’s previous books sold more than 300,000 copies
In this acclaimed novel from a Booker Prize–winning author, 12-year-old
Irish schoolgirl Mary O’Hara is having difficulty coming to grips with
the impending death of her beloved Granny. It is when Mary is at her
lowest point—racked with fear and sadness at the thought of losing one
of the people for whom she cares most in the world—that a mysterious
young girl shows up at her door. It’s none other than Tansey, the ghost of
Granny’s mother. She has arrived to usher Granny out of this world, but
first she invites Mary, Mary’s mother Scarlett, and Granny on a trip to
the past. This moving, humorous story vividly portrays the bond between
mothers and daughters, the pain of losing a loved one, and the joy of life.
En esta aclamada novela de un ganador del Premio Booker, Mary
O’Hara, una muchacha irlandés de 12 años, está teniendo dificultad
aceptando la muerte inminente de su querida abuelita. Es cuando Mary
se encuentra en su punto más bajo—carcomida por el temor y la tristeza
de perder a una de las personas que más quiere en el mundo—que una
misteriosa joven aparece en su puerta. Es Tansey, el espíritu de la madre
de su abuela. Ha venido para llevarse a la abuela de Mary de este mundo,
pero primero invita a Mary, a Scarlett, la mamá de Mary, y a la abuela a
emprender un viaje al pasado. Esta entrañable y divertida historia vívidamente retrata el vínculo entra las madres e hijas, el dolor de perder a un
ser querido y el gozo de la vida.
Roddy Doyle is an award-winning Irish author, playwright, and screenwriter. He was awarded the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha
Ha Ha and has contributed to publications such as McSweeney’s and the
New Yorker.
