Description of this Book

El senor Pato y la senora Pata saben que el Jardin Publico de Boston es el lugar perfecto para criar a su familia. Pero para unos patitos recien salidos del cascaron no es lugar seguro. La islita del rio Charles parece ideal, y la senora Pata en el Jardin, su nuevo hogar. Pero ella no contaba con tener que atravesar con sus pequenos patitos las calles de Boston, con todo su trafico! La historia, contada en detalle con gracia y bellamente ilustrada, de estos patitos que van de un lado a otro, se ha ganado el corazon de generaciones de lectores. Premiada en 1941 con la Medalla Caldecott como El libro ilustrado para ninos mas distinguido del ano, ha sido desde entonces lectura favorita de millones de lectores, tanto ninos como adultos.

Author's Bio

Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children's books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer. He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000. You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston's Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.
