Los mayores hacemos cuanto podemos pero los pequeños, a veces... a veces lo quieren todo, no les apetece esforzarse demasiado, hacen lo que no deberían, pasarían mucho tiempo ante las pantallas, tenemos que repetirles varias veces lo mismo... Son lo mejor que tenemos, pero educarles puede ser un gran reto. Estos cuentos, que a través de sus historias tratan temas como la autonomía, la autoestima, el esfuerzo, la frustración, el ocio electrónico y otros, nos sirven para hablar con niños y niñas sobre todo ello. El objetivo: que pequeños y mayores disfrutemos juntos de los cuentos a la vez que educamos en autonomía y la responsabilidad.

Translated by Gregory Rabassa, winner of the National Book Award for Translation, 1967 Horacio Oliveira is an Argentinian writer who lives in Paris with his mistress, La Maga, surrounded by a loose-knit circle of bohemian friends who call themselves "the Club." A child's death and La Maga's disappearance put an end to his life of empty pleasures and intellectual acrobatics, and prompt Oliveira to return to Buenos Aires, where he works by turns as a salesman, a keeper of a circus cat which can truly count, and an attendant in an insane asylum. Hopscotch is the dazzling, freewheeling account of Oliveira's astonishing adventures.

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE Music legend Bob Dylan's only work of fiction—a combination of stream of consciousness prose, lyrics, and poetry that gives fans insight into one of the most influential singer-songwriters of our time. Written in 1966, Tarantula is a collection of poems and prose that evokes the turbulence of the times in which it was written, and gives a unique insight into Dylan's creative evolution. It captures Bob Dylan's preoccupations at a crucial juncture in his artistic development, showcasing the imagination of a folk poet laureate who was able to combine the humanity and compassion of his country roots with the playful surrealism of modern art. Angry, funny, and strange, the poems and prose in this collection reflect the concerns found in Dylan's most seminal music: a sense of protest, a verbal playfulness and spontaneity, and a belief in the artistic legitimacy of chronicling everyday life and eccentricity on the street.

A riveting and powerful story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship and an indestructible love
Author: Truman Capote
In Cold Blood reconstructs the 1959 murders of a Kansas farmer, his wife and two of their children. Truman Capote's comprehensive study of the killings and subsequent investigation explores the circumstances surrounding this terrible crime and the effect it had on those involved. At the centre of his study are the amoral young killers Perry Smith and Dick Hickcock, who, vividly drawn by Capote, are shown to be reprehensible yet entirely and frighteningly human. The book that made Capote's name, In Cold Blood is a seminal work of modern prose, a remarkable synthesis of journalistic skill and powerfully evocative narrative. "The best documentary account of an American crime ever written." - New York Times.
