Living in the city of São
José dos Campos (SP), Alex Guimarães, who has
already published two books for children, "The
Laying Giant - The story of Jerônimo Mendonça"
and "Huey, the Centennial Boy", presents us now
with another story published by EVOC – The
Virtual Publisher of the magazine O Consolador (The
Comforter). You are going to meet "Antuza - The
deaf-mute who listened and spoke", translated
into English, thanks to the kind collaboration
of Eleni Frangatos, who lives in Vinhedo (SP).
But how could Antuza, who lived in Uberaba (MG)
and healed people with her hands, hear if she
How could she speak, it she was mute?
What did she listen?
She listened to whom?
With whom did she speak?
When you read this book – a book especially for
children – you will know a little more about
this “shorty” that was a friend of Chico Xavier,
Jerônimo Mendonça, Eurípedes Barsanulfo and
Maria Modesto Cravo.
The cover and illustrations are a creation of
the author himself, with the collaboration of
his daughter and his wife, who helped mostly in
the graphic design. Astolfo Olegário de Oliveira
Filho revised the text.
