Synopses & Reviews

Review:

A special aspect of Federico Garcia Lorca's personality was the ease with which he made friends with children and the delight he took in entertaining them. In addition to the little puppet shows he created for his sisters and their friends and for the children of other writers, he wrote many little poems as well as words set to folk tunes that are still read and sung by Spanish children today and which, in their rarity and charm, are just the right size for anyone of any age.

Review:

"Translated ingeniously by Will Kirkland and illustrated brilliantly by Maria Horvath. Incredibly, this is the first translation of these great little poem/songs....Perfect, with the Spanish and English on facing pages. A child could almost learn English (or Spanish) from them...as gifts for all children and peors, no age limit at either end." Beliot Poetry Journal
