12 winter myths, legends, tales and stories make up this beautifully illustrated book. Myths that explain the seasons; a legend of a huge snowman; tales of an unexpected Christmas present, of a young girl beautiful as snow, of an old woman who tastes a succulent soup; stories that tell where oranges come from, what we celebrate at Christmas, why we decorate our house with fir trees, or who arrives on the night of December 24.

Ana C. Herreros
He was born in León and his grandmother kept quiet stories. So he soon learned to listen to the silence and to love those who have no voice, those who don't count.
So much so that, years later and already an emigrant in Madrid, he began to write a doctoral thesis on the literature of those who neither write nor read. And so, researching in the oral tradition, he ended up in 1992 with oral narration. And he began to tell, and for more than twenty years he has not been silent. Then his voice filled with ink and he began to write. It has been translated into Catalan, French and Mexican. He has made an autistic man speak, a princess sit down to listen to his lecture and 16 6-month-old babies preferred listening to his stories to taking a bottle. Oh, if your grandmother raised her head...
