The wolf and the hawk were the two favorite species of Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente (1928-1980), a naturalist and great popularizer. And they are also two of the protagonists of the collection of children's books that EL MUNDO launches starting tomorrow and that can be purchased every Saturday at the kiosk for 6.95 euros.
The Adventures of Félix brings together a dozen stories based on the figure of the naturalist who enchanted the Spanish in the 70s with his documentaries from his famous RTVE series El hombre y la Tierra , from which this collection has been inspired.
Operación Lince , the story that opens the collection and which will be sold this Saturday, will be followed by The Mark of the Wolf , Red Eagle Alert , The Return of the Seals , On a Trip with the Bear , Save the Vulture or The Otter Game , among other titles. And it is that 40 years after his disappearance, Felix's legacy is still relevant.
The tales tell fictional stories starring Felix, a peculiar group of collaborators, also fictional, and some of the most emblematic animal species.
A bit of literary fantasy to make known to the little ones the figure of this popularizer who infected everyone with his enthusiasm for nature: «It
was impossible that you were not passionate about it . It was amazing how he described a partridge, even though he had seen thousands of them, ”recalls Odile, one of his daughters.
