Publisher Information

Media Vaca, Editorial


A cow is a ruminant: it swallows its food in order to bring it back up to the mouth to be chewed calmly. That is exactly how books should be read: returning to them on different occasions and chewing them thoroughly for a pleasant digestion. Children learn from books, but they also learn from stones, flies, ants and spiders. They learn from anything and everything. They learn when they play. And they never tire from learning. Which is why it is so absurd that there should be boring books, and that one should waste one's time with them instead of lending one's close attention to a dung beetle on the sidewalk. Some of the most boring books are done by people who think like tailors and believe that children's books should be like children's suits: smaller by several sizes. A child's innocent gaze has nothing to do with the size of pants. So what if not everything is easy to understand? Few adults can tell you why aeroplanes are able to fly, and they are still widely used for travel. With the exception of those made to turn us into zombies, each book contains a piece of a treasure map (at least that was the case in the past). There is a well-kept secret we will only be able to decipher once we have all the pieces. Sometimes, one takes one's time. There is nothing strange about starting to read at age seven and realise that one is still holding the same book in one's hands at age seventy-seven.
