Gabriela Mistral He was born in 1889 in Vicuña, a small town located where the Elqui Valley ends. Her father was a school teacher, a profession that she also practiced at the early age of 15. Very concerned about Chilean education, she wrote about the need for a law to ensure primary education. She is one of the most important writers in Chilean history, which earned her the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1945 and the National Prize for Literature in 1951.

Constanza Bravo He has Chilean and Swiss nationality. He has lived more in Switzerland than in Chile, the country where he was born and where he finished his primary and secondary studies. She has a diploma in Design from the École Supérieure d'Arts Visuels in Geneva. She is a Visual Arts teacher at the elementary school in the same city. He has published in editorials such as La joie de Lire and Amanuta. His books have been translated into several languages.

Everything he does tells a story, sometimes for children, whom he loves deeply, and sometimes for adults.
