Read full description of the books El libro de los niños:

El libro de los niños transcurre durante el lento y destellante crepúsculo victoriano, esa apasionante época que va desde el final del siglo XIX hasta la primera guerra mundial. La protagonista de la novela es Olive Wellwood, una famosa escritora de libros infantiles. Ella y su numerosa familia viven en una casa de campo formando una especie de sociedad dedicada al culto del arte, la literatura, la conversación y la política. Cuando el hijo mayor de Olive sorprende a otro niño, de origen humilde, en una sala del Museo Victoria and Albert de Londres, dibujando un famoso candelabro, la vida de esas familias empezará a cambiar. El niño será adoptado por los Wellwood e ingresará así en un mundo deslumbrante, lleno de inquietantes misterios y fulgurantes deslumbramientos. Novela sobre la relación entre niños y adultos, homenaje a la grandeza de la imaginación y elegía por el final de una era y de una generación que murió en las trincheras de la primera guerra mundial, El libro de los niños es una sinfonía narrativa de inagotable lectura, un libro llamado a figurar entre los grandes clásicos de nuestro tiempo.
