A pioneering study of a unique narrative form, Words about Pictures examines the special qualities of picture books--books intended to educate or tell stories to young children. Drawing from a number of aesthetic and literary sources, Perry Nodelman explores the ways in which the interplay of the verbal and visual aspects of picture books conveys more narrative information and stimulation than either medium could achieve alone. Moving from "baby" books, alphabet books, and word books to such well-known children's picture books as Nancy Ekholm Burkert's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Gerald McDermott's Arrow to the Sun, Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, and Chris Van Allsburg's The Garden of Abdul Gasazi, Nodelman reveals how picture-book narrative is affected by the exclusively visual information of picture-book design and illustration as well as by the relationships between pictures and their complementary texts.

What is a Marsupial? A marsupial (mar-SOO-pee-al) is a type of animal that has a special way of caring for its young. When a baby marsupial is born, it is too weak and frail to live outside. Instead, it crawls inside a pouch in the mother’s body where it can be warm and protected. It stays there until it grows big enough to go outside. Kangaroos and koalas are marsupials. Most of the Australian animals in this book are marsupials. Marsupials live in other parts of the world too. A young marsupial is usually called a joey. You can sometimes see a joey sticking its head out of its mother’s pouch. All marsupials are mammals. This means that the young ones drink milk from their mother’s body. Joeys do this while inside their mother’s pouch.

Una nueva edición de la novela icónica de Sylvia Plath, con traducción inédita de Eugenia Vázquez Nacarino y prólogo de Aixa de la Cruz, que da una nueva lectura en pleno reflujo de la más reciente oleada feminista. «Respiré profundamente y escuché el antiguo estribillo de mi corazón. Yo soy, yo soy, yo soy». Esta es la historia de una chica que tiene todo lo que una joven puede desear en el Nueva York de los años cincuenta: una carrera prometedora, un pretendiente que estudia medicina y toda una vida por delante. Esther Greenwood ha ganado una beca para trabajar en una revista de moda en la gran ciudad y siente que por fin podrá realizar su sueño de ser escritora. Pero entre cócteles, noches de fiesta y pilas de manuscritos descubre una sociedad que repudia las aspiraciones de las mujeres y su vida empieza a desmoronarse. Esther -alter egode la autora- se encierra en sí misma, como si estuviera atrapada en una campana de cristal: respirando continuamente el mismo aire viciado y sin posibilidad de escapar. Más de cincuenta años después de su publicación original, La campana de cristal se ha convertido en un clásico moderno, y las palabras de Plath, con la nueva traducción de Eugenia Vázquez Nacarino, conservan todo su impacto. Esta obra icónica, como dice Aixa de la Cruz en el prólogo, «viaja al presente como una corriente eléctrica y nos interpela de tú a tú, sin mediaciones». La crítica ha dicho... «Sylvia Plath no es un genio cualquiera, su sombra caliente rodea las gargantas de miles de lectores, de aspirantes a poeta y de adolescentes que quieren ser como ella: hermosa, fuerte, brutal [...]. Plath es un mito, sí. Plath es una musa. Plath es una marca que preside nuestras estanterías.» Luna Miguel «La novela en clave dolorosamente gráfica de Sylvia Plath, en la que una mujer lucha por su propia identidad ante la presión social, es un texto esencial en el feminismo angloamericano.» The Guardian «Mantiene su poder después de cinco décadas.» The Telegraph «Sylvia Plath se convirtió para mucha gente en una figura extraliteraria, en una heroína de las contradicciones: alguien que se enfrentó al horror, con el que supo crear algo, pero que también la destruyó.» The New Yorker «Esta novela contempla la locura del mundo y el mundo de la locura y nos fuerza a considerar el gran interrogante planteado en toda ficción verdaderamente realista: ¿qué es la realidad y cómo podemos enfrentarnos a ella?» The New York Times Books Review
