Natalia introduced me to the great Latin American writer Horacio Quiroga. We would read his stories to each other with immense pleasure before going to sleep.

One day while she was reading me The Bald Parrot from his book Jungle Tales, with her affected voice imitating that of the antagonistic jaguar, I realized that these were a collection of stories that English speaking children deserve the pleasure of reading.
