Flora y Ulises
A translation of Flora and Ulysses (9780763660406)

Kate DiCamillo
Illustrations by K. G. Campbell
“Original, touching, and oh-so-funny tale starring an endearingly
implausible superhero and a not-so-cynical girl.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on the English-language edition
“Rife with marvelously rich vocabulary reminiscent of the early
superhero era (e.g., “Holy unanticipated occurrences!”) and amusing
glimpses at the world from the point of view of Ulysses the super-
squirrel, this book will appeal to a broad audience of sophisticated
readers. There are plenty of action sequences, but the novel primarily
dwells in the realm of sensitive, hopeful, and quietly philosophical
literature.”  —School Library Journal, starred review,
 on the English-language edition
“Newbery winner DiCamillo is a master storyteller not just because
she creates characters who dance off the pages and plots, whether epic
or small, that never fail to engage and delight readers. Her biggest
strength is exposing the truths that open and heal the human heart.
She believes in possibilities and forgiveness and teaches her audience
that the salt of life can be cut with the right measure of love.”
—Booklist, starred review, on the English-language edition
“Despite supremely quirky characters and dialogue worthy of an SAT
prep class, there’s real emotion at the heart of this story involving two
kids who have been failed by the most important people in their lives:
their parents.”  —Publishers Weekly, starred review,
 on the English-language edition
• English-language original won the 2014 Newbery Medal
A young girl and a squirrel form an unusual friendship after a tragic
accident. Ulysses, the squirrel, accidently gets swallowed up in the
new vacuum cleaner that spins out of control. Luckily, self-pro-
claimed cynic, Flora Belle Buckman, is nearby and comes to the furry
animal’s rescue. What happens next is amazing: Ulysses acquires
the super powers of flight, tenacity, and misspelled poetry. Flora is
changed too as she discovers both the power and strength of hope.
From #1 New York Times–bestselling author Kate DiCamillo is a
laugh-out-loud adventure with a bit of tenderness, interspersed with
comic-style graphic sequences and illustrations that will delight read-
ers both young and old.
Kate DiCamillo is considered one of the most famous children’s book
authors in the United States, and her books have been translated into
more than 30 languages. She is the author of The Magician’s Elephant,
a New York Times bestseller; The Tale of Despereaux, a 2004 Newbery
Medal winner; Because of Winn-Dixie, a Newbery Honor book; and
many others. She lives in Minneapolis. K. G. Campbell is a promising
young illustrator whose early work has won awards such as the Ezra

Los secretos de los duendes


A translation of Goblin Secrets (9781442427273)

William Alexander
“An unlikely heroic quest. . . . Though highly textured, it’s tightly
woven and reassuringly seamless. The result is wryly humorous
and bearably yet excitingly menacing: Even while much is left
unexplained, Rownie’s triumph is both gripping and tantalizing.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on the English-language edition
“The story weaves a many-webbed tale, rich in imagination with a
fairy-tale feel.”  —School Library Journal,
 on the English-language edition
“Alexander has an intriguing central theme, in which masks and
theater create actual magic. . . . The result is a (sometimes gruesome)
fantasy stuffed with interesting ideas.”  —Publishers Weekly,
 on the English-language edition
• The English-language original is the winner of the 2012 National Book
Award for Young People’s Literature
• The English-language original is a New York Times bestseller
In an imaginary country named Zombay, young Rownie runs away
from the orphanage where he lives in search of his missing brother,
Rowan. Acting is outlawed in Zombay, and Rowan has disappeared
because he is an actor. Desperate to find him, Rownie joins a troupe
of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. These plays are not only
for entertainment; the masks they use are for more than make-be-
lieve. The goblins want to find Rowan as well—because he might
be the only person who can save the town from being flooded by a
mighty river. This fantasy novel about love, loss, and family is filled
with adventure and sure to entertain all readers.

Rownie se incorporó y trató de quitarse el sueño y el polvo de yeso de los ojos a punta de parpadeos. El suelo estaba cubierto por

Su hermana, Vass, salió de la habitación de las niñas, que en realidad era el mismo cuarto con una sábana colgada en el medio. Vass
era su nombre desde antes de venir a vivir a casa de Graba. A veces, los nietos de Graba conservaban sus nombres. A veces se ponían
otros. Blotches y Stubble se habían puesto esos nombres.
—Apresúrense —urgió Vass.
Rownie se levantó, se peinó quitándose con los dedos la paja del pelo y se movió del centro de la habitación tropezando. Se quedó al
lado de Vass y Blotches mientras Stubble tiraba de la cuerda que bajaba la escalera desde el techo. El olor mohoso del ático de Graba
bajó también.
Vass subió. Los otros la siguieron. Rownie fue el último.

This illustrated novel combines science fiction, fantasy, and literary
adventure in a surprising universe filled with strange creatures. Eva
Nine was raised by the robot Muthr in an underground sanctuary.
When a marauder destroys it, the 12-year-old girl is forced to flee
aboveground for the first time. She is determined to find anyone else
like her, and she knows other human beings exist because of one clue:
a photograph of a young girl, an adult, and a robot that reads
“WondLa.” Who are these people? What does this strange word
mean? Tony DiTerlizzi honors traditional children’s literature in this
original space-age adventure—one that is as complex as an alien
planet, but as simple as a child’s desire to belong.
Tony DiTerlizzi is a graphic artist and a children’s author. His fame
began with the success of his series the Spiderwick Chronicles. He is
the illustrator and author of all five novels in the series, as well as

Yoga para niños


Yoga for Kids

Ramiro Calle
Yoga has proven to be one of the most effective spiritual and physical
workouts. It eliminates tension, physical aggression, and stress and
facilitates concentration and self-control. In a time when children are
constantly bombarded with “noise” and distractions, they develop con-
centration problems, sleep dysfunctions, and hyperactivity. Yoga fights
against this and is a great tool for relaxation, fitness, and developing
mindfulness. This illustrated book was conceived and designed—at the
request of many parents—by Ramiro Calle, the greatest authority on
yoga in Spain. It is a simple and practical tutorial on how to practice
yoga for kids ages seven to nine.
Ramiro Calle is a pioneer of yoga in Spain and has led the yoga center
Shadak since 1971. He is a former yoga teacher at the Autonomous
University of Madrid and is the author of Autobiografía espiritual,
La sabidura de los grandes yoguis, and La senda de la atención plena.

Excerpt:
A veces también puedo ver las almas humanas, y cuando esto
sucede, me siento muy privilegiada. El alma, que está dentro
del cuerpo, llenando toda la forma del cuerpo, se mueve hacia
delante. Y aunque tiene un parecido con la persona, no es
idéntica. No tiene todos los mismos rasgos, y es como si la
persona fuera físicamente perfecta. Cuando se me permite ver
un alma, esto significa que está sucediendo algo espiritual,
pero puede que la persona no sea consciente de ello. En esos
casos, me lleno de una felicidad inmensa y de paz, y de la
certeza de que Dios está a cargo de todo.

Enamórate de ti
El valor imprescindible de la autoestima
Fall in Love with Yourself: The Essential Value of Self-Esteem

Walter Riso
Self-improvement cannot occur without positive self-esteem.
For cognitive therapist Walter Riso, author of some of the most
influential psychological books in recent years, loving oneself is a
prerequisite for developing our potential as individuals. Not only
does it contribute to inner growth, but it becomes a key to happi-
ness and well-being. However, that’s not all: it also represents the
benchmark that enables us to love others and to be loved. This
book, the newly revised edition of the classic Aprendiendo a quer-
arse a sí mismo, is aimed at those who have negative self-esteem
and believe they are unworthy of appreciation and incapable of
achieving great things. Riso invites us, without shame, to recog-
nize the strengths and virtues we possess, our worth as individuals,
and our rights to love and to be loved.
Walter Riso is a psychologist specialized in cognitive therapy and
bioethics. For more than 28 years he has worked as a therapist,
practicing alternately as a university chair while contributing
to scientific publications and psychological disclosures. He is a
professor of cognitive therapy and is the honorary president of the
Columbian Association of Cognitive Therapy. His previous works
include La afectividad masculina, Amores altamente peligrosos,
and El camino de los sabios.

Excerpt:
La imagen que tienes de ti mismo no es heredada o genéticamente determinada, es aprendida. El cerebro humano cuenta con un
sistema de procesamiento de la información que permite almacenar un número prácticamente infinito de datos. Esa información, que
hemos almacenado en la experiencia social a lo largo de nuestra vida, se guarda en la memoria de largo plazo en forma de creencias
y teorías. De esta manera poseemos modelos internos de objetos, significados de palabras, situaciones, tipos de personas, actividades
sociales y muchas cosas más. Este conocimiento del mundo, equivocado o no, nos permite predecir, anticipar y prepararnos para
enfrentar lo que vaya a suceder. El futuro está almacenado en el pasado.
La principal fuente para crear la visión del mundo que asumes y por la que te guías surge del contacto con personas (amigos, padres,
maestros) de tu universo material y social inmediato. Y la relaciones que estableces con el mundo circundante desarrollan en ti una idea
de cómo crees que eres. Los fracasos y éxitos, los miedos e inseguridades, las sensaciones físicas, los placeres y disgustos, la manera de
enfrentar los problemas, lo que te dicen y lo que no te dicen, los castigos y los premios, el amor y el rechazo percibidos, todo confluye
y se organiza en una imagen interna sobre tu propia persona: tu yo o tu autoesquema. Puedes pensar que eres bello, eficiente, intere-
sante, inteligente y bueno, o todo lo contrario (feo, ineficient, aburrido, bruto y malo). Cada uno de estos calificativos es resultado de
una historia previa, en la que has ido gestando una “teoría” sobre ti mismo que dirigirá tu comportamiento futuro. Si crees que eres un
perdedor, no intentarás ganar. Te dirás: “¿Para qué intentarlo? Yo no puedo ganar” o “Esto no es para mí” o “No valgo nada.”
Los humanos mostramos la tendencia conservadora a confirmar, más que a refutar las creencias que almacenamos en nuestro cerebro
por años. Somos resistentes al cambio por naturaleza, y esta economía del pensamiento nos vuelve tozudos y poco permeables a los
estímulos novedosos. Una vez establecida será difícil cambiarla, pero no es imposible. Así que cuando configuras un autoesquema
negativo sobre tu persona, te acompañará por el resto de tu vida si no te esfuerzas en modificarlo. Más aún: para comprobar esos
esquemas de manera no consciente harás muchas cosas aun perjudiciales para ti (así de absurdos somos los humanos). Por ejemplo: si
te dejas llevar por el autoesquema: “Soy un inútil,” sin darte cuenta, el miedo a equivocarte hará que cometas infinidad de errores que
confirmarán tu predicción mental subyacente. La creencia de que eres feo o fea te llevará a frenarte y a evitar las relaciones interperso-
nales, y la conquista afectivo-sexual se convertirá en algo inalcanzable (pues nadie se fijará en ti si no te expones).

Excerpt from “Los matices del odio”:


Tomó la mano que él ofrecía. Sin voluntad, el Titiritero utilizó el momento del contacto. Tal como había hecho con cada nueva
marioneta, trazó los caminos de los nervios hasta el cerebro, abriendo las puertas que más tarde le permitirían el acceso a distancia.
Encontró las puertas cerradas de sus emociones, los turbulentos colores que se arremolinaban detrás, y los tocó posesivamente, con
avidez. Descorrió cerrojos y pasadores, y abrió de golpe la puerta.
El odio rojinegro que se derramó desde atrás de la puerta lo envió de regreso, dando tumbos. Todo ese aborrecimiento estaba dirigido
hacia él, todo. Completamente inesperada, esa furia no se comparaba con ninguna emoción que hubiera experimentado antes. Su
intensidad amenazaba con ahogarlo, al grado que lo hizo retroceder. El Titiritero jadeó; Gregg se obligó a disimular su reacción. Dejó
caer su mano mientras el Titiritero gemía dentro de su cabeza, y el miedo que lo había alcanzado un momento antes se multiplicó.
Se ve como Andrea, como Succubus: el parecido es asombroso. Y me detesta. Dios, ¡cuánto me odia!
—¿Senador? —repitió Sara.
—Sí, estoy muy emocionado por el viaje —replicó de manera automática.— La actitud de nuestra sociedad hacia las víctimas del virus
wild card ha empeorado en el último año. A algunas personas, como el reverendo Leo Barnett, les gustaría hacernos retroceder a la
opresión que se vivía en los años cincuenta. En los países menos ilustrados la situación es mucho, mucho peor. Podemos ofrecerles

12 años de esclavitud
A translation of 12 Years a Slave (9781631680083)

Solomon Northup
“A moving, vital testament.”
—Saturday Review, on the English-language edition
• The English-language edition is a New York Times #1 bestseller
and has been adapted into an Academy Award–winning film
Solomon Northup’s father, Mintus, was born into slavery
and only freed after his master’s death. Solomon, however,
was born a free man in New York and lived the American
dream with a home and a loving family, until he was sud-
denly drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery in the Deep
South. This story is the true account of his 12 years as a
slave. His extraordinary journey proves his resiliency despite
the most grueling and disturbing of circumstances.
Solomon Northup was an African American carpenter who
was born free in Minerva, Essex County, New York, but
was bound into slavery later in life for a period of 12 years.
He regained his freedom in January 1853.

A translation of This Is Warhol (9781780670140)

Illustrations by Andrew Rae


Andy Warhol, the iconic Pop artist, presented himself as a
vacuous, dumb kid, famously saying, “If you want to know all
about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings . . .
and there I am. There’s nothing behind it.” This book penetrates
the surface and explores Warhol’s art from his beginnings as a
commercial artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter.
Vivid illustrations reveal Andy’s worlds: his childhood in Pitts-
burgh, his chaotic Manhattan mansion, and the Silver Factory,
where New York’s bright new things hung out and had fun.
Andrew Rae is an illustrator and a member of the illustration
collective Peepshow. He has worked for many clients world-

Por qué creemos en dios(es)


Una guía concisa de la ciencia de la fe
A translation of Why We Believe in God(s): A Concise Guide
to the Science of Faith (9780984493210)

J. Anderson Thomson Jr., MD, and Clare Aukofer


Prologue by Richard Dawkins
“A wonderfully concise introduction to our growing scientific
understanding of religion. If you would like to learn, in the span
of an hour, why we have every reason to believe that God is man-
made—this is the book to read.”  —Sam Harris,
 New York Times–bestselling author, The End of Faith,
 on the English-language edition
“An excellent resource for secondary as well as higher education
students, this book contains a comprehensive summary of the re-
sults generated from current scientific research on religious beliefs.
It is neither a defense of atheism nor an attack on religion—it is
a simplified explanation of what happens in our brains when we
believe in supernatural things, like religion.”  —David Tamayo,
 president, Hispanic American Freethinkers,
 on the English-language edition
“Some religious scholars argue that it is useless to search for a natu-
ral explanation of religion. Dr. J. Anderson Thomson demonstrates,
with great clarity and exemplary reasoning, that religion can be seen
as a useful feature of our biological evolution. . . . I recommend this
book especially to those scholars who may not be familiar with the
most recent developments of evolutional psychology.”
 —Dr. Héctor Avalos, professor of religious studies,
 Iowa State University, on the English-language edition
“A small (almost pocket-size) book . . . to pique the interest of believers
and nonbelievers alike.”  —Booklist, on the English-language edition
In this groundbreaking volume, J. Anderson Thomson Jr., MD, and Clare Aukofer offer a succinct yet comprehensive study of how
and why the human mind generates religious belief. Dr. Thomson, a highly respected practicing psychiatrist with credentials in forensic
psychiatry and evolutionary psychology, methodically investigates the components and causes of religious belief in the same way any
scientist would investigate the movement of astronomical bodies or the evolution of life over time—that is, as a purely natural phenom-
enon. Providing compelling evidence from psychology, the cognitive neurosciences, and related fields, he, with Ms. Aukofer, presents an
easily accessible and exceptionally convincing case that god(s) were created by man—not vice versa. With this slim volume, Dr. Thomson
establishes himself as a must-read thinker and leading voice on the primacy of reason and science over superstition and religion.
J. Anderson Thomson Jr., MD, is a staff psychiatrist at the University of Virginia’s Student Health Center and Institute of Law, Psychiatry,
and Public Policy. He maintains a private practice of adult and forensic psychiatry and serves as a trustee of the Richard Dawkins Foun-
dation for Reason and Science. Clare Aukofer is a medical writer and editor. They both live in Charlottesville, Virginia. Richard Dawkins
is an ethologist, an evolutionary biologist, and a writer. He is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford, and was formerly the University
of Oxford’s Professor for Public Understanding of Science. Among his previous books are The Ancestor’s Tale, The God Delusion, and
The Selfish Gene.

Lost in Music
Una odisea pop
A translation of Lost in Music: A Pop Odyssey (9780330339179)
Giles Smith
“One of the best books about music that you will ever read. . . .
It is impossible to read Lost in Music without laughing out loud.”
 —Daily Telegraph, on the English-language edition
“If you have ever watched a band play or bought a pop record, you
should read this book.”
 —John Peel, Independent, on the English-language edition
“A wonderfully funny pop-music memoir.”
—Spectator, on the English-language edition
Since he was very young, author Giles Smith was attracted to the
world of pop music: the songs played on the radio, the concerts
aired on TV, the 7” singles he bought or stole, the bizarre hairstyles,
and the electric guitars. He began to feverishly collect records and
imitate his idols, especially Marc Bolan of T. Rex. Smith played in
school bands, dreaming of one day becoming a pop star himself.
The only thing related to pop music to ever have come out of his
hometown of Colchester, England, though, is a fake story about
the Beatles stopping into a grocery store there to buy candy on
the way to one of their concerts. Smith’s love for pop music led
him to play it, first in amateur teen bands that no one would hire,
then in the Cleaners from Venus, which never made it anywhere
despite getting signed with RCA in Germany. They recorded an
album, however, and after all is said and done, that’s what counts.
The album was recorded in a dive studio with pathetic equipment,
and the band occasionally slept there overnight. But nothing else
mattered besides getting to record an album, a real album. This
book is a firsthand account of failure and indelible love. With sharp
humor, Smith recalls his childhood dreams, the bands in which he
played over the years, the records he listened to and collected, and Excerpt:
the crucial years in which he developed an eternal passion for pop
