People call Emilia the Bird Girl. Many fear her, not only because she is rather a solitary girl, but also because she talks to birds. Yet there is more: there begin to be disappearances in the town and everyone suspects that these are happening because of Emilia’s curses. Tobias, her neighbour, is the one who is most afraid of her but, with his courage, he will soon discover the true nature of the Bird Girl and the mystery of what is occurring in the town. Valentina Toro, the author and illustrator of La niña que hablaba con los pájaros, shared this beautiful story, one that might instil fear, but also strength, with the children, inviting them to create their own stories in both words and images.
