Description

Margarita vive en una casa grande y senorial rodeada por una cerca. Cuando se trepa a su arbol preferido, puede ver desde lo alto su jardin hermoso y seguro. Tambien puede ver los pequenos ranchos al lado, donde su amiga Rosario vive con su familia. Un dia, despues de haber dejado despreocupadamente su triciclo junto a la cerca, Margarita ve a Rosario y a su hermano arrastrarlo hasta el patio de su casa y esconderlo bajo una caja...

Esta historia explora la brecha entre ricos y pobres, asi como la conciencia y el sentido de la responsabilidad que esta diferencia crea en una nina que tiene tanto mas que la gente que la rodea. Bellamente ilustrado por Alfonso Ruano en un estilo realista y magico, el relato se apoya en el sentimiento y la intuicion para establecer su proposito.
