The strongest

that love moves mountains

and the force is not seen,

is what this book tells.

Review on the blog Apegoyliteratura

From Apegoyliteratura they echo our book and some of its images, a very good initial introduction for the hypothetical interested reader.

Estrella Ortiz

Marguerite of the Mazo

He was born in Malpica de Tajo (Toledo), next to a castle full of legends that his grandmothers told him. As a child, she was already a storyteller, so, although she graduated in Law, she soon saw how her path twisted towards the world of stories. And it began to tell, for more than two decades, it tells for all the ears that want to listen to it. Tell stories out loud and on paper. And he says to live from the story, not only because it gives him enough to live, but because he cannot live without telling. Author of more than twenty titles, some of which can be found in more than twelve languages. His works have won numerous  national and international awards: Lazarillo Award for Illustrated Album  2011,  Gold Medal at the Bratislava Biennale 2013, Booksellers Guild Award 2014, Fundación Cuatrogatos Award  2016,  Best Children's Fiction Picture Book at the International Latino Book Awards 2016, Gelett Burgess Awards 2016,  Juul Award 2017, Cuatrogatos Foundation Award 2018.
