Mih brought me two Mafalda books from Argentina. The cover of one of them is featured in this picture. Mafalda is a very very smart little girl, who's quite mature for her age and very much concerned with the future of mankind and world peace.
So far, my favorite episodes are:
Mafalda wakes up and goes to her mother:
"Good morning, mom, do you know if they have destroyed all the nuclear weapons already?"
"I don't know, sweetie, but I doubt it", says the mother. "Why?"
"Oh... nothing", says Mafalda.
And going back to her room, she thinks: It would be nice, for a change, to know that one's life depends entirely upon oneself..."
Check out some Mafalda cartoons in Spanish here.
