Mafalda is a 6-year-old middle-class Buenos Aires girl, curious about the world and finely attuned to its injustices. When her character was first published in 1964, she was an immediate hit and transcended borders, with the strip translated into more than two dozen languages. Through Mafalda and her friends, Quino reflects about politics, the economy, and society in general with critical, intelligent humor. Half a century after bursting into readers’ lives, Mafalda and her friends are as young and vibrant as ever.
