A new Spanish and English bilingual edition of the stunning picture book biography of Pablo Neruda, one of the world's most enduring and popular poets, from the acclaimed Monica Brown.Había una vez un niño llamado Neftalí, quien amaba las cosas salvajes locamente y las cosas tranquilas serenamente. Desde el momento en que aprendió a hablar, se rodeó de palabras. Neftalí descubrió la magia oculta entre las páginas de los libros. Cuando tenía dieciséis años, comenzó a publicar sus poemas bajo el nombre Pablo Neruda. Pablo escribió poemas sobre las cosas que amaba: obras creadas por sus amigos artistas, objetos hallados en los mercados y elementos de la naturaleza. Escribió sobre la gente de Chile y su lucha por salir adelante. Porque sobre todas las cosas y sobre todas las palabras, Pablo Neruda amaba a la gente. Once there was a little boy named Neftalí who loved wild things wildly and quiet things quietly. From the moment he could talk, he surrounded himself with words, seeking comfort and inspiration from the magic he discovered between the pages of books. When he was sixteen, he began publishing his writing as Pablo Neruda. Pablo wrote poems about the things he loved--things made by his friends in the café, things found at the marketplace, and things he saw in nature. He wrote about the people of Chile and their stories of struggle. Because above all things and above all words, Pablo Neruda loved people. With a new translation of Monica Brown's lyrical text and Julia Paschkis' gorgeous art, which celebrates multiple languages, this new edition will introduce the youngest of readers--of English, Spanish, and both--to the legacy of one of history's most iconic talents.
