Hear My Voice/Escucha mi voz: The Testimonies of Children Detained at the Southern Border of the United States

The Testimony of ChildrenA moving picture book for older children and families that introduces a difficult topic, amplifying the voices and experiences of immigrant children detained at the border between Mexico and the US. The children's actual words (from publicly available court documents) are assembled to tell one heartbreaking story, in both English and Spanish (back to back). Each spread is illustrated in striking full color by a different Latinx artist. A portion of sales will be donated to human rights organizations that work with children on the border.

Zonia's Rain Forest

A heartfelt, visually stunning picture book from the Caldecott Honor and Sibert Medal Winner illuminates a young girl's day of play and adventure in the lush rain forest of Peru.

Zonia's home is the rain forest, where it is always green and full of life. Every morning, the rain forest calls to Zonia, and every morning she answers. She visits the sloth family, greets the giant anteater, and runs with the speedy jaguar. But one morning, the rain forest calls to her in a troubled voice. How will Zonia answer?

Acclaimed author illustrator Juana Martinez Neal explores the wonders of the rain forest with Zonia, an Asháninka girl, in her joyful outdoor adventures. The engaging text emphasizes Zonia’s empowering bond with her home, while the illustrations—created on paper made from banana bark—burst with luxuriant greens and delicate details. Illuminating back matter includes a translation of the story in Asháninka, information on the Asháninka community, as well as resources on the rain forest and its wildlife.

Tomás Nevinson

«Matar no es tan extremo ni tan difícil e injusto si se sabe a quién.»

Tras la aclamada Berta Isla, llega la nueva y esperada novela de Javier Marías.
Una intriga absorbente que explora el envés del «No matarás».

***

«Yo fui educado a la antigua, y nunca creí que me fueran a ordenar un día que matara a una mujer. A las mujeres no se las toca, no se les pega, no se les hace daño»

Dos hombres, uno en la ficción y otro en la realidad, tuvieron la oportunidad de matar a Hitler antes de que éste desencadenara la Segunda Guerra Mundial. A partir de este hecho, Javier Marías explora el envés del «No matarás». Si esos hombres quizá debieron disparar contra el Führer, ¿cabe la posibilidad de hacerlo contra alguien más? Como dice el narrador de Tomás Nevinson, «ya se ve que matar no es tan extremo ni tan difícil e injusto si se sabe a quién».

Tomás Nevinson, marido de Berta Isla, cae en la tentación de volver a los Servicios Secretos tras haber estado fuera, y se le propone ir a una ciudad del noroeste para identificar a una persona, medio española y medio norirlandesa, que participó en atentados del IRA y de ETA diez años atrás. Estamos en 1997. El encargo lleva el sello de su ambiguo ex jefe Bertram Tupra, que ya, mediante un engaño, había condicionado su vida anterior.

La novela, más allá de su trama, es una profunda reflexión sobre los límites de lo que se puede hacer, sobre la mancha que casi siempre trae la evitación del mal mayor y sobre la dificultad de determinar cuál es ese mal. Con el trasfondo de episodios históricos de terrorismo, Tomás Nevinson es también la historia de qué le sucede a quien ya le había sucedido todo y a quien, aparentemente, nada más podía ocurrir. Pero, mientras no terminan, todos los días llegan.
