Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the time he is a young boy, Neftalí hears the call of a mysterious voice. Even when the neighborhood children taunt him, and when his harsh, authoritarian father ridicules him, and when he doubts himself, Neftalí knows he cannot ignore the call. Under the canopy of the lush rain forest, into the fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain, he listens and he follows...

Combining elements of magical realism with biography, poetry, literary fiction, and sensorial, transporting illustrations, Pam Muñoz Ryan and Peter Sís take readers on a rare journey of the heart and imagination.

Review:

"The neat squares of Sis's meticulously stippled illustrations...complement and deepen the lyrical quality of the book.... This book has all the feel of a classic, elegant and measured, but deeply rewarding and eminently readable. (Starred Review)" Booklist

Review:

"Ryan's fictional evocation of the boy who would become Pablo Neruda is rich, resonant and enchanting....The illustrator's trademark drawings deliver a feeling of boundless thought and imagination....[A] splendid, beautifully presented work." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Conflicts, injustice, and a promised future make the story compelling.... [P]aths beckon and exquisite details reflect the dreamer's maturing imagination, clothing this masterful tribute in art that fits it as ineluctably as Neruda's new name suited his purpose." Horn Book

Review:

"This is a striking, loving portrait, which does justice to Neruda's life and also stands as an accomplished work of art in its own right." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Synopsis:

This moving story about the birth of an artist is also a celebration of childhood, imagination, and the strength of the creative spirit. Ryan weaves sound poems and thought-provoking questions into her exquisitely crafted prose while Ss's delicate drawings transport readers to the lushness of the Chilean rainforest. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Neftali siente admiracion y curiosidad por todo: los colores del aceite en un charco, un guante perdido, el viento al navegar, el canto de los pajaros. A Neftali le encanta coleccionar tesoros, sonar despierto y escribir -pasatiempos que su padre piensa que le hacen perder el tiempo. Sin embargo, a pesar de todas las adversidades, el espiritu de Neftali prevalece a pesar de su timidez y la crueldad de su padre hasta llegar a convertirse en uno de los poetas mas leidos en todo el mundo, Pablo Neruda. Este libro inspirara' a jovenes escritores y artistas.

Neftali finds beauty and wonder everywhere: in the oily colors of mud puddles; a lost glove, sailing on the wind; the music of birds and language. He loves to collect treasures, daydream, and write--pastimes his authoritarian father thinks are for fools. Against all odds, Neftali prevails against his father's cruelty and his own crippling shyness to become one of the most widely read poets in the world, Pablo Neruda. This moving story about the birth of an artist is also a celebration of childhood, imagination, and the strength of the creative spirit. Sure to inspire young writers and artists.

Synopsis:

A breathtaking illustrated novel from Pura Belpre Award winner, Pam Ryan, and MacArthur fellow and three-time Caldecott Honoree, Peter Sis!
