María Elena Walsh

ARGENTINA, 1930-2011

A genuine classic of Argentinean children’s literature whose songs and stories continue to be passed on from generation to generation, María Elena Walsh began her career in 1945 with publications in the magazine El Hogar (where Borges was editor) and the newspaper La Nación. Her first book, Tutu Maramba, was published in 1960 and would be followed by many other celebrated titles, among them A Land I Don’t Remember and Crazy Zoo is in fact a compilation of those curious stories in verse known as limericks in the tradition of Lear. She is the creator of such unforgettable characters as Manuelita the Turtle and many others who appear in stories and songs recorded by personalities among the likes of Joan Manuel Serrat and Mercedes Sosa. Her books are regularly reprinted and have sold several million copies.
