A classic of Spanish literature and another entry on the " Children's Books You Should Read" list, but not one of my favorites. It was very well written.
The prose was excellent and the opening of the story was fascinating and magical, almost fairy-tale like. And then reality intruded. The story almost worked except that the motivations of the main character at the end were somewhat incomprehensible to me--certainly at odds with everything from his character development up to that point as w A classic of Spanish literature and another entry on the " Children's Books You Should Read" list, but not one of my favorites. The story almost worked except that the motivations of the main character at the end were somewhat incomprehensible to me--certainly at odds with everything from his character development up to that point as well as the usual motivations of 11 year old boys.
But the ending saved the story for me. A decent read. Jul 10, Lola rated it it was amazing. This is possibly my favorite book ever! I first read it when I was I grew up in a home with three aunts my grandmother's sisters, and I felt like Juju and I understood each other. I re-read this book every year Re-read this today.

Matute was born in Barcelona, Spain, the second of five children in a conservative middle class family. Her father, Facundo Matute, owned an umbrella factory and has been credited with inspiring his daughter's creativity. Matute spent a considerable amount of time in Madrid during her childhood as well, but few of her stories are set there.
When she was four years old, she almost died of an illness Matute was born in Barcelona, Spain, the second of five children in a conservative middle class family. When she was four years old, she almost died of an illness, and was taken to live with her grandparents in San Mansilla de la Sierra, a small town in the mountains, for a period of convalescence. Matute says that she was profoundly influenced by the villagers whom she met during her time there.
This influence can be seen in such works as those published in the anthology Historias de la Artamila "Stories about the Artamila", all of which deal with the people that Matute met during her recovery. Settings reminiscent of that town are also often used as settings for her other work. She was almost ten years old when the Spanish Civil War broke out in , and this conflict is said to have had the greatest impact on Matute's writing.
She considered not only "the battles between the two factions, but also the internal aggression within each one" The war resulted in Francisco Franco's rise to power, starting in and escalating until , when he took control of the entire country. Franco established a dictatorship which lasted thirty-six years, until his death in The violence brought on by the war continued through much of his reign.
Since Matute matured as a writer in this posguerra period under Franco's oppressive regime, some of the most recurrent themes in her works are violence, alienation, misery, and especially the loss of innocence. The couple divorced in Because of the laws of Spain, following her divorce she was not allowed to see her son, as the law gave full care over to her ex-husband.
This caused Matute great emotional distress. However, she refused to use this as material for any of her stories. During her last years, before being very ill, Matute worked as university professor. She traveled in various countries, especially the United States, as a lecturer.
She was outspoken about subjects such as the benefits of emotional suffering, the constant changing of a human being, and how innocence is never completely lost. She claimed that, although her body was old, she was young at heart. Her academic life also led her to be an honorific member in the Hispanic Society of America and, in the year , to be a juror in the Miguel de Cervantes Prize, the most important in spanish language. As dedicated readers already know, some of the best and most innovative stories on the shelves come from the constantly evolving realm of young ad Read more No trivia or quizzes yet.
