They say that long time ago, Selene, the goddess of the night, was crying and her tears were so beautiful and transparent that have transformed into two beautiful creatures: one had a coat white and clean as a snow, the other one – brown, with all its nuances such as a soil. Both – with blue eyes, the color of his mother, that was expressing the mystery of its creation, its four strong and slender legs, elegantly marking their steps – were so beautiful that Selene wished for seeing them. One was called Luviere, a wolf, the Lord of the frozen oceans, and the other Laycon – the Lord of the high mountains.
So begins “Lebiscuno”, the story of our World Book Day 2009 Literary Contest winner. The book tells the story of Elly, the student who is leading her monotonous life and who sees herself involved in the legend of the Children of the Moon: the Lords have cast a spell on her, which could only be eliminated if Leroy see salvation through her eyes. This story was the most downloaded in this edition of our book contest, which thus elects a winner.
In addition, the jury decided to give special appreciation to the story of Yunaby Inma Llavería Todó, from Tarragona, Spain, that inspired this article published on Iwith.org.
