Valerito, the prison child:

His mother brought him into the world; his father, out of the world. He is six years old, and he sleeps in a prison cell with his brother and his father. Valerito goes out through the prison gate every morning to go to school, and comes back in through the prison gate in the afternoon, hoping to get some late lunch, because there isn´t much for supper on the prison menu. Soup, soup, and more soup. Always the same horrible soup. Like Mafalda, the famous comic-strip girl, Valerito hates soup. He doesn´t want to grow up because the older children have to work in the prison, and still older ones are not allowed to go to school any more.


Valerito, kartzelako haurra:

Amak ekarri zuen mundura. Aitak, mundutik kanpora. Sei urte ditu, eta ziega batean egiten du lo, anaiarekin eta aitarekin. Kartzelako atetik ateratzen da goizero, eskolara joateko, eta arratsaldean, atzera, kartzelako atetik sartzen da, gosetuta, ea askaririk ba ote den. Sakratua da askaria Valeritorentzat, afari handirik ez baitu izaten iluntzeta. Zopa, zopa, eta zopa. Presoen menua. Beti zopa nazkagarri hori. Mafaldak arrazoi. Valeritok ez du hazi nahi, pixka bat handiak direnak lanerako erabiltzen dituztelako kartzelan, eta puska bat handiak direnek ezin dutelako eskolara joan.
