About the Author
Liniers: Liniers was born in Buenos Aires in 1973. He has created many illustrations & comics for the press, collections and anthologies. His series Macanudo is published daily in Argentina's largest newspaper, La Nacion.
"Liniers manages to craft comics that never talk down to children, regardless of whether or not they involve children. [His strip] is not cynical or sarcastic or high-tech. It aims for that timelessness that we associate with some of the very best comic strips about childhood, from Peanuts to Calvin and Hobbes." -- Alex Dueben, The Comics Journal ". . . a comfortable, inviting cast of characters (penguins included) expertly delineated with soft cartoon charm that younger readers who eschew crunching action will be most grateful for and curl up warmly with for many an hour."
-- Jesse Karp, Booklist "Macanudo is a joy! Liniers' whimsical and wry observations about cats, relationships, gnomes, and gravity make me happy, but most important, he draws funny!" -- Jeff Smith, author of BONE and RASL "There is no ongoing story line and each strip stands on its own, so this title would be a good choice for those looking for a sweet, lighthearted graphic novel." -- Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library "The most amusing strips feature Henrietta, a smart little girl, and either Mandelbaum, her frustratingly nonresponsive teddy bear, or Fellini, her cat. The huge cast plays out observational jokes based on Liniers's multifaceted interests that are ably captured by his wispy art, which would look right at home in the New Yorker. At its heart, this is a gag-humor strip, but the intellectual undertone mixes the sweetness of Calvin and Hobbes and the surrealism of the Far Side. It's an impressive sampling." -- Publishers Weekly
