Description

Mirlo Viejo (Old Blackbird) is the one who conveys to the youngest blackbirds the "secrets of life" that they need to know in order to survive. Bulebule, one of his pupils, becomes so fascinated by the stories her elders tell about Mirlo Blanco (White Blackbird) that from then on she dreams about being the chosen one to lay the egg containing the rara avis, the blackbird destined to win happiness for his entire species. After the Wheel of Life has given a turn, Bulebule finds that she is now an adult blackbird, and she realizes that no matter what we look like or who we are, Mirlo Blanco is inside each of us. Her dream has changed. Now she dreams about becoming a good Old Blackbird and telling the youngsters the secrets of the Wheel of Life, the secrets she was taught and all the secrets she has yet to discover. Garuda is a story peacock par excellence. His courage makes him capable of facing up to a whole army; the Blackbird in the tale begins to live the Wheel of Life, which is teeming with passion-filled discoveries; an eagle falls from its nest, pushed by its sister. It hasn’t learned to fly yet. It has no chance of survival unless someone lends a hand; Gordo, a rebellious swift, insists on touching the floor. He doesn’t know that swifts must never land, for in doing do, they are putting their life in danger.show more
