Manolito Gafotas is a 1994 children's novel written by the Spanish writer Elvira Lindo and illustrated by Emilio Urberuaga.[1] It is the first of a series of novels about the adventures of a working class kid in Carabanchel that inspired two movies in 1999 and 2004 and a TV series.[2]

The novel has been translated into English as Manolito Four-Eyes. The Kirkus review comments on its chatty, first person narrative and understated humor and describes it as "a classic in its native Spain.[3]
