LÁZARO, Georgina . Jorge Luis Borges illus. by Graciela Genovés. ISBN 978-1-933032-40-5 . LC 2009008491. ea vol: 32p. (Cuando los grandes eran pequeños/When the Grown-ups Were Children Series). Lectorum Sept. 2009. Tr $14.99. Gr-5-8 Lázaro re-casts the lives of the great Latin-American literary masters through poetic verse in this exciting series. In the first book, her poetry is particularly acute in capturing the symbols from García Lorcas childhood that he later wrote about in his poems for children: the lizard, the red bird, the cricket, and the frog, as well as the games and songs of early childhood growing up in small agricultural towns in the province of Granada, Spain. Moreiros vibrant tempera paints on panels and illustration boards convey the tranquility of place as well as the calm and gentle nature of Spains beloved poet. This is an excellent introduction to Lorcas life and a perfect companion to Federico García Lorca para niños (Susaeta Ediciones, S.A. 1999), issued for the García Lorcas centennial. In the second title, Lázaros poetry is eloquent and dramatic and provides essential elements of Borgess childhood immersed in a world of fantasy and imagination. Privately tutored at home in his native Argentina until the age of nine, he also spent countless hours engaged in free play and listening to stories read in English by his British grandmother. Genovéss glowing watercolors complement Borgess eccentric nature, particularly his obsession with tigers, a leif motif used in some of his short stories.
