The Heroic Legend of Hamlet ¡Ya a la venta!

Introduction for parents and teachers

Both today, with the world at the edge of a cliff, and when the story of prince Hamlet first saw the light at the hand of William Shakespeare four hundred years ago, the promises to man, the lies that feed false hope, are on human lips. So, now as in then, the uncomfortable presence of the non-conformist and indomitable Danish prince becomes essential; especially when we talk about a literary menu of a youth who barely understands the tides of the world they sail.

Captains Courageous ¡Ya a la venta!

Introduction for
parents and teachers

In 1937, Metro Goldwyn Mayer produced Captains Courageous, one of those adventure films that transcend time. Years after seeing it for the first time, I decided to use the original story, the novel by the same name written by Rudyard Kipling in 1896, for this small collection of children’s books. I thought it would be a good idea to adapt the original story into an easy-to-read tale that, nonetheless, would still keep the spirit in Kipling’s work.

Gautama and the Dragon ¡Ya a la venta!

Introduction for
parents and teachers

In the middle of a world in constant and exponential convulsion, a serene thought allows me to reach a hopeful conclusion about the future: if there is a better tomorrow (I believe there is), it lies within the small people, who should receive the best in each one of us. Their accomplishments will depend –largely– on their parent’s efforts and abilities in giving them a family culture that favours healthy minds and free spirits. In short, all that doesn’t abound in our current and sophisticated adult reality.

The Wizard of Oz ¡Ya a la venta!

Introduction for
parents and teachers

   More than one fool would give out his fortune to anyone who could guarantee him/her the ability of knowing other people’s deepest thoughts. But this gift has existed –through reading– for thousands of years. What is becoming scarcer is the interest in reading, although access to information and culture grows everyday. Time is also scarce in inverse proportion.

The Water Babies ¡Ya a la venta!

Introduction for
parents and teachers

   I’m happy to share with all the readers this story written by Charles Kingsley, published in 1863 for the first time. Since it first saw the light, it became a very popular book in the United Kingdom. It was considered a classic among children’s books from the Victorian Era and it didn’t lose popularity until well into the beginning of the 20th century.

La Heroica Leyenda de Hamlet - Ya a la venta


Tanto hoy, con el mundo al borde del precipicio, como cuando la historia del príncipe Hamlet vio la luz de la mano de William Shakespeare hace cuatrocientos años, las promesas al hombre, las mentiras que alientan falsas esperanzas, están en labios humanos. Así que, antes como ahora, la incómoda presencia del contestatario e indomable príncipe danés se hace imprescindible; máxime cuando hablamos del menú literario de una juventud que apenas alcanza a entender las mareas del mundo en el que navega.
