Description


Ganador del Premio Sydney Taylor Book Award Winner 2020

En esta historia la abuela de Julian le cuenta cómo ella, Sara, fue acogida por una familia en un pueblofrancés ocupado por los nazis durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.


Le explica cómo fue perseguida por ser judía y cómo el niño al que todos rechazaban se convirtió en su salvador y mejor amigo.

Esta desgarradora y conmovedora experiencia demuestra el poder de la amabilidad para cambiar corazones, construir puentes e incluso salvar vidas. Como su abuela le dice a Julian: «Siempre se necesita valor para ser amable, pero en aquellos tiempos, esa amabilidad podía costarte todo».
La primera novela gráfica de R. J. Palacio tiene un simbolismo tan potente que es capaz de traernos del pasado un valiosísimo mensaje.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

2020 Sydney Taylor Book Award Winner


Inspired by her blockbuster phenomenon Wonder, R. J. Palacio makes her graphic novel debut with an unforgettable story of the power of kindness and unrelenting courage in a time of war.

"I was captivated by White Bird. It tells the hardest truths with honesty and calm (so that young readers can hear them). R.J. Palacio brings to life the nature of heroism and the real risks we face today." --Meg Medina, Newbery award-winning author of Mercy Suarez Changes Gears

In R. J. Palacio's bestselling collection of stories Auggie & Me, which expands on characters in Wonder, readers were introduced to Julian's grandmother, Grandmère. Here, Palacio makes her graphic novel debut with Grandmère's heartrending story: how she, a young Jewish girl, was hidden by a family in a Nazi-occupied French village during World War II; how the boy she and her classmates once shunned became her savior and best friend.

Sara's harrowing experience movingly demonstrates the power of kindness to change hearts, build bridges, and even save lives. As Grandmère tells Julian, "It always takes courage to be kind, but in those days, such kindness could cost you everything." With poignant symbolism and gorgeous artwork that brings Sara's story out of the past and cements it firmly in this moment in history, White Bird is sure to captivate anyone who was moved by the book Wonder or the blockbuster movie adaptation and its message.
