Description

Relato poético y delicado cuyos protagonistas son un mamut, un ave y un ratón. Este bello álbum nos habla de la amistad que puede surgir entre seres muy distintos entre sí. Un día soleado, un mamut llamado Sansón se pasea por el campo. De pronto se encuentra con un pequeño pájaro rojo que está buscando flores amarillas para su amigo el ratón (cuyo color favorito es, precisamente, el amarillo). Cuando el ave levanta el vuelo llevándose algunas flores en el pico, Sansón se pone a meditar. Entonces se pregunta qué se sentirá tener un amigo. Poco después se duerme y despierta en medio de un paisaje blanco. ¡El largo invierno ha comenzado! En medio de una tormenta de nieve, Sansón se encuentra con el pájaro rojo y con el ratón al que le gustan las flores amarillas. Ambos animales, pese a ser tan pequeños, deciden hacerse amigos del enorme mamut. El talento de Philip C. Stead se pone al servicio de un relato sobre la búsqueda de la amistad y la comprensión.

This poetic tale of friendship stars a mammoth, a bird, and a rat. One sunny day, a mammoth named Samson is walking through the countryside. Suddenly, he comes across a little red bird looking for yellow flowers for his friend the rat (whose favorite color, of course, is yellow). When the bird flies off with flowers in his beak, Samson begins to think. He wonders what it would feel like to have a friend. Soon afterwards, he falls asleep and wakes up in the middle of a white landscape. The long winter has begun! In the snowstorm, Samson meets the red bird and the rat. Both of them, in spite of their small size, decide to befriend the massive mammoth.
