Overview

Había una vez 22 huérfanos que vivían juntos en un orfanato. Casi no tenían cosas para jugar, así que debían usar lo que encontraran: un barandal, una cuerda, un árbol o, algunas veces, sólo su imaginación. Aun así eran sobradamente felices y muy despreocupados, hasta que un día... llegó una nueva directora.

English Translation: There were once 22 orphans who lived together in an orphanage. They almost did not have things to play, so they had to use what they found: a handrail, a cord, a tree or, some times, only its imagination. Even so amply happy and they were very despreocupados, until a day... arrived a new director.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
PreS-Gr 2-This is a wonderful story about 22 orphans running rampant in a large, old-fashioned orphanage. Since they don't have very many toys, the children play on or with or under whatever they can find. This leads to all sorts of precarious and even life-threatening games. When a new director is hired she tries to keep the rambunctious children under control. Not only does she fail to curb their high-spirited, imaginative play, she is also lured into their way of life. This story is so politically incorrect by current standards kids cavorting on rooftops and swinging from third floor balconies, the directress sharing a bed with the orphanage inspector, etc. that one can't imagine it published in this country by any but the most intrepid imprint. Frankly, it's hilarious. Kids will enjoy the vicarious peek into the unfettered play of these "lucky" orphans. The whimsical illustrations complement the tone of the text nicely. Recommended for school and public libraries as well as bookstores. Maria Otero-Boisvert, Criticas Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
