   El árbol de los deceos                                           Wiliam Faulkner
         El Árbol de los Deseos
         (The Wishing Tree)
GL 3-5

 

Dulcie, a little girl in the deep South of the United States, travels in search of the wishing tree, accompanied by her nanny Alice, her little brother Dicky, and Maurice, a very special friend. When they find it, their wishes begin to come true and they realize what happens when one is selfish.
Although it’s said that Faulkner was always interested in the perspective of children, this is the only tale he wrote specifically for them.

 



New Children's Titles

        

  Asombro del Nuevo Mundo

   


Rudyard Kipling
El libro de la selva
(The Jungle Book)
GL 3-5

 

 

 

Mowgli, a young boy, has gotten lost in the jungle. A family of wolves decides to adopt him despite the other animals’ reservations because, according to them, man is the most dangerous animal that exists. The boy grows up under the rules of the jungle, until the time comes for him to join his peers.
A required title in any library, our edition is distinguished by its beautiful illustrations and a classic large format.

 

 

                            

El terror del sexto B




Yolanda Reyes
El terror de Sexto “B”
(The Terror of Class 6 B and other School Stories)GL 3-6

 

 

The seven episodes in this book will refresh the memories of us older folks and will entertain our children, offering a realistic vision of school, but with a grand sense of humor.
The seven stories that make up this work tell about situations that occur inside and outside the classroom, such as the moment of a first kiss, the most daring kid in the class, the girl who can’t stand gym class, and the boy who is in love but doesn’t know how to show it.
The book manages two things uncommonly found in a single book: to interest and to entertain. Its author has written real, fresh stories of school days which any student (or teacher) can identify with.

 

El Ultimo Espía




Pablo de Santis
El Último Espía
(The Last Spy)GL 6-12

 

 

 

Stuffed Kangaroo, the spy, notes that bars no longer harbor mysterious people, and movie theaters are no longer the scene for exchanging secret messages. Just when his spy agency is closing and he finds himself the Last Spy, he gets a call from a Mysterious Millionaire who hires him to solve many more mysteries.
As always, the most powerful reason to read a book is the desire to find out what happened. That’s why the police cases that comprise this book are ideal for reluctant readers to rediscover the pleasure of reading, even if only as a means to satisfy their curiosity.

       

 

La rebelión de las palabras



M.B. Brozon
Andrea Ferrari
La rebelión de las palabras
(The Word Rebellion)GL 4-8

 

 

The Word Rebellion tells the story of the Clum family, whose members are affected by language-related illness. This takes many different forms: in some cases, the characters are unable to pronounce a certain letter or two letters together; in others, it affects their conversation style. Through humor, irony, and ingenuity, this novel allows readers to enjoy language and words, and at the same time, reflect about the importance of communication.
