El Estambre mágico del señor Pug

El señor Pug supo que sería un día malo desde que despertó, y lo confirmó cuando su hada lo dejó solo en casa para ir a un  concurso de belleza. Pronto se aburre y se pone a tejer con el estambre mágico y las agujas que apareció el hada antes de irse.  Se hace un par de calcetines, un gorrito, una bufanda; le pone una cubierta a la silla, a su taza, a los muebles del jardín... Hay  tanto estambre de colores que incluso le alcanza para cubrir su casa... Lo que no se imagina es que pronto lloverá..

Señores Niños - Daniel Pennac

Durante la clase de francés del profesor Crastaing, tres de sus alumnos, Igor, Nourdine y Joseph, se pasan un dibujo satírico. En él una multitud enfurecida marcha tras una pancarta que reza: «Crastaing, cabrón, irás al paredón!».

El profesor, ofendido, les impone un castigo: para el día siguiente tienen que hacer una redacción sobre el tema: «Despierta usted cierta mañana y comprueba que, por la noche, se ha transformado en adulto. Enloquecido, corre a la habitación de sus padres. Se han transformado en niños. Cuenten la continuación».

De un hombre obligado a levantarse con el pie derecho y otras crónicas

Hace ya tres décadas que la erupción del Volcán Nevado del Ruiz borró del mapa de Colombia un pueblo: Armero. Años después, Alberto Salcedo Ramos pasó días y noches en la casa de Ana Cecilia Vargas, una sobreviviente de la tragedia a quien el fango y las cenizas le perdonaron la vida. Su relato, doloroso y a la vez esperanzador, fue incluido en este trabajo de 16 crónicas, escritas por el que es considerado uno de los mejores cronistas de Iberoamérica.

Así es la Biología

Ernst Mayr fue uno de los biólogos más importantes del siglo XX. En esta obra fundamental, se plantea varias preguntas clave: ¿cuál es el significado real y profundo de la vida? ¿Cómo evolucionan y se desarrollan los organismos? ¿Cómo encaja el hombre en el complejo proceso de la evolución?

Toda persona debería tener presente, a la hora de reflexionar sobre el mundo y los seres vivos, los conceptos básicos de la biología moderna: evolución, biodiversidad, competición, extinción, adaptación, selección natural, reproducción, etc.

The Complete stories - Truman Capote.

Most readers know Truman Capote as the author of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood, or they remember his notorious social life and wild and witty public appearances. But he was also the author of superb short tales that were as elegant as they were heartfelt, as compassionate as they were grotesque. This volume is the first to assemble all of Capote’s short fiction—a collection that indeed confirms his status as one of the masters of this form. The Complete Stories of Truman Capote restores its author to a place not only above mere celebrity but to the highest levels of American letters.

Siddartha

The novel set in traditional India, tells the life of Siddhartha, a man for whom the path of truth passes through renunciation and understanding of the unity that underlies everything that exists.

Siddhartha is the most representative work of this process and has exerted a great influence on the western culture of the 20th century. "The true profession of man is to find the way to himself." Herman Hesse, Nobel Prize for Literature in 1946.

The lives of a Cell - Lewis Thomas

Elegant, suggestive, and clarifying, Lewis Thomas's profoundly humane vision explores the world around us and examines the complex interdependence of all things.  Extending beyond the usual limitations of biological science and into a vast and wondrous world of hidden relationships, this provocative book explores in personal, poetic essays to topics such as computers, germs, language, music, death, insects, and medicine.  Lewis Thomas writes, "Once you have become permanently startled, as I am, by the realization that we are a social species, you tend to keep an eye out for the pieces of evidence that this is, by and large, good for us."
