Carles Sala i Vila

Carles was born in Girona. He worked as a primary school teacher until he decided to leave teaching in order to devote himself to crafts and, most particularly, to writing.

Although a very prolific author, his works are created with great dedication and loving intensity. His bibliography includes several books that have managed to win highly significant literary awards, such as the Premi Josep M.Folch i Torres, the Premi Barcanova, the Vaixell de Vapor and the Guillem Cifre de Colonya.

He finds delight in the way of thinking and the imagination of children, as well as in nature, though his real passion is his son Pep.

 


 

Fluid and elegant prose and careful loving detail and dialogues that both children and adults will enjoy… As the back cover speaks of Cornelius, “there are people who seem to have come to the world to change it.” It is not difficult to see that Sala i Vila may be one of them.” –  El templo de las mil puertas

“A writer who knows how to connect with his readers right away, adapt to their different ages and interests; He uses rich language, whilst at the same time reaching children and conveying values that help us grow… Without doubt, at the end of each story, readers are left with the restlessness and desire to read another one.” – Mònica Badia Cantarero,  General for Language and Multilingualism
