Biography[edit]

He began his career in the late '40s, alternating editorials as Ameller (Los Mil y un cuentos, Princesita), Marte (Sam, Cuentos Mariposa) and Toray (Azucena, Cuentos de la Abuelita, Mis cuentos).

From 1955 he worked almost exclusively for the publishing house Toray in both, previous collections and in new ones: Alice (1955), Graciela (1956), Lindaflor (1958 ), Rosas Blancas (1958), Guendalina (1959), Susan (1959), Serenade (1959) and Tales Diadema (1960). In Editorial Bruguera he published a couple of stories, “Sissi” (1957) and “Cuentos de Andersen” (1958), which are numbers 38 and 57 of the series Stories.

Later, he worked in Editorial Susaeta, using his reputation to present collections such as Las muñecas Pascual Maria and Muñecas recortables de María Pascual. However, his most important work, was made with Grupo Océano: Cuentos infantils, La Biblia infantil, Fábulas, Las Mil y una noches, Aprenda inglés con María Pascual, Aprendo matemáticas, Mi primer diccionario, El sexo contado a los pequeños, etc. among the most important, though they were not very well known among us as they were intended for South America and several European countries. His personal works include more than 2,000 drawings, and are preserved in the Biblioteca de Catalunya.
