Classic latin american folktales get an update in this new Spanish language collection by award-winning and bestselling author Liniers!

Critically acclaimed cartoonist Liniers is back with TOON again, following up on the successes of his earlier books like Eisner-winner Good Night, Planet and Batchelder Award Honor-winner Written and Drawn by Henrietta. This time he’s tackling a selection of Latin American folktales in Spanish and transforming them for the modern-day with his signature wit and mastery of the comics medium.
Born in Argentina, Ricardo Liniers Siri (a.k.a. Liniers) started his artistic career making fanzines for his friends when he realized we was not made for law school. He won the Inkpot Award for career achievement in 2018, and the Reuben Award for Best Newspaper Comic Strips in 2021. He has more than 30 books published, many of which have been translated to English, French, Italian, Czech, German, Portuguese, Korean and Chinese. He has illustrated 7 covers of The New Yorker magazine.
