Spanish titles!

A continuación la selección de libros adquiridos en la FIL Monterrey:

Sé muchas cosas por Ann y Paul Rand.

Claro y rítmico, lúdico e ingenioso, así es el texto de Ann Rand que anima a los más pequeños a pensar sobre todo lo que se puede llegar a aprender del mundo que los rodea. Las ilustraciones, coloristas e ingeniosas, las debemos a su marido, el diseñador gráfico Paul Rand. Sé muchas cosas es un clásico infantil que captura la frescura de la infancia y el descubrimiento del mundo que nos rodea.

A un hombre de gran nariz por Francisco de Quevedo y Ivar Da Coll.

Quevedo, a través de metáforas exageradas y de un ingenio que no deja lugar a dudas, se burla descarnadamente de su archienemigo Luis de Góngora. Y así comola sátira de Quevedo es incisiva, no lo son menos las ilustraciones de Ivar Da Coll, quien utiliza como pretexto este poema para recrear un día en la vida burguesa de un hombre del barroco a través de personajes, paisajes y situaciones lejanas y hasta exóticas para los lectores de hoy en día.

Eloísa y los bichos por Jairo Buitrago y Rafael Yockteng.

“¿Qué se siente ser un bicho raro? Todos te miran al pasar la calle, en la clase, en el recreo; pareces tener grandes antenas, alas o caparazón, todo en ti se arrastra y definitivamente no encajas en esa nueva ciudad. Eloísa y los bichos es una bella reflexión sobre las cosas nuevas, sobre todo aquello que nos es desconocido. E libro nos habla de miedos, pero también de aprendizajes; de extrañezas, pero también de costumbres; de rechazo, pero también de amistad”. Por ACLI.

El cuento en video:

El auto del Sr. Pulga por Daniel Barbot y María Isabel Mas.

El Sr. Pulga diseña automóviles fantásticos: cada uno es un modelo único que responde a la imagen y gusto del cliente. Ahora el Sr. Pulga quiere inventar nuevas estrategias para salir de la actual crisis del automóvil, es decir, la crisis del tráfico.

Las cosas que guardo por Mónica Gutiérrez Serna.

Las cosas que me parecen importantes, las voy poniendo todas dentro de mi cabeza pero hay otras tan especiales que prefiero guardarlas en otro sitio… averigua dónde…

 Un pasito… y otro pasito por Tomie de Paola.

En Un pasito.. y otro pasito se cuenta la historia de una amistad enorme entre un niño y su abuelo. Ignacio crece pasito a paso de la mano de su abuelo Nacho. Pero un día Nacho enferma, y es el amor de Ignacio el que ayuda a su abuelo a volver a la vida.

El pato y la muerte por Wolf Erlbruch.

Desde hacía tiempo, el pato notaba algo extraño. -¿Quién eres? ¿Por qué me sigues tan de cerca y sin hacer ruido? La muerte le contestó: -Me alegro de que por fin me hayas visto. Soy la muerte. El pato se asustó. Quién no lo habría hecho. -¿Ya vienes a buscarme? -He estado cerca de ti desde el día en que naciste… por si acaso. -¿Por si acaso? -preguntó el pato. Sí, por si te pasaba algo. Un resfriado serio, un accidente… ¡nunca se sabe! – Sí, nunca se sabe.

No juzgues a un libro por su cubierta: refranes y anti-refranes para toda ocasion.

Breve y muy docta introducción a esta magnífica selección de perlas de sabiduría popular en la que se refuta la idea de que los refranes siempre dicen la verdad.

Episodios de la Revolución Mexicana en Nuevo León por Lydia Espinoza Morales.

Algunos de los sucesos que tuvieron lugar en Nuevo León han sido lustrados y narrados en este libro para darnos a conocer los momentos decisivos en la vida de los protagonistas.
