The Skeleton Woman

This story is based on a traditional Inuit tale, which talks about how important it is to choose well who accompanies you. 

It is the story of a woman who despises her peers and, therefore,

she loses her woman's skin and becomes a being made only of bone.

It is the adventure of this woman, who manages to return to being a woman of flesh and blood... It is the story of so many women who have left our skin to the bone

and how we have to learn to feel again...

Ana C. Herreros

She was born in León and her grandmother kept quiet stories. So she soon learned to listen to the silence and to love those who have no voice, those who don't tell tales.

So much so that, years later and already an emigrant in Madrid, she began to write a doctoral thesis on the literature of those who neither write nor read. And so, researching the oral tradition, she ended up in 1992 with oral narration.  And she began to tell, and for more than twenty years, she has not been silent. Then her voice filled with ink and she began to write.  She has been translated into Catalan, French and Mexican. She has made an autistic man speak, a princess sit down to listen to her lecture and 16 6-month-old babies preferred listening to her stories to taking a bottle. Oh, if her grandmother raised her head...

With Libros de las Malas Compañías she has also published the following titles:

He is an illustrator, narrator and teacher, but above all, he is a narrator. He has been with the Jamacuco stage group since the last century, and he likes telling stories so much that he has gone from voice to paper. Now he also paints the parallel universe of the stories using coloured pencils and a brush made of the hair of a child. Whether as a narrator or as a cartoonist, the important thing is that it continues to count.

As an illustrator, he has been working since January 2012 at the Ipad Magazine DON, and since May 2014 he is the art director, designer and illustrator of the publishing house Libros de las Malas Compañías. He already has a book published, The Skeleton Woman, which has been a finalist for the Extraordinary Prizes for Plastic Arts and Design of the Autonomous Community of Madrid. It has also received the Honorable Mention at the XII Audiovisual Awards of the Directorate General for Equality.

With Libros de las Malas Compañías he has also illustrated the following titles:
