Synopsis:

Amos el ratón y Boris la ballena: un par de amigos leales con nada en común excepto un buen corazón y la voluntad de ayudar a su colega mamífero. Se conocen luego de que Amos se lanza al mar en su bote fabricado por él mismo, el Roedor, y pronto se encuentra en la extrema necesidad de ser rescatado. Aparece Boris. Pero llegará el día, mucho después de que Boris haya vuelto a su vida balleneante y Amos a su vida ratoneante, en que el pequeño ratón deba buscar una forma de socorrer a la gran ballena.

Tierna y cómica a la vez, la historia de esta amistad ha sido registrada en un texto y unas ilustraciones que son un modelo de rica simplicidad. Aquí, con aparente desenvoltura y un virtuosismo disimulado, William Steig, premiado con la medalla Caldecott, da vida a dos héroes triunfantes.

About the Author:

William Steig (1907-2003) was a cartoonist, illustrator and author of award-winning books for children, including Shrek!, on which the DreamWorks movies are based. Steig was born in New York City. Every member of his family was involved in the arts, and so it was no surprise when he decided to become an artist. He attended City College and the National Academy of Design. In 1930, Steig's work began appearing in The New Yorker, where his drawings have been a popular fixture ever since. He published his first children's book, Roland the Minstrel Pig, in 1968.

In 1970, Steig received the Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. His books for children also include Dominic; The Real Thief; The Amazing Bone, a Caldecott Honor Book; Amos & Boris, a National Book Award finalist; and Abel's Island and Doctor De Soto, both Newbery Honor Books. Steig's books have also received the Christopher Award, the Irma Simonton Black Award, the William Allen White Children's Book Award, and the American Book Award. His European awards include the Premio di Letteratura per l'infanzia (Italy), the Silver Pencil Award (the Netherlands), and the Prix de la Fondation de France. On the basis of his entire body of work, Steig was selected as the 1982 U.S. candidate for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for Illustration and subsequently as the 1988 U.S. candidate for Writing.

Stieg also published thirteen collections of drawings for adults, beginning with About People in 1939, and including The Lonely Ones, Male/Female, The Agony in the Kindergarten, and Our Miserable Life.

He died in Boston at the age of 95.
