Treasure hunting with stories.

Paula Carbonell

Paula Carbonell


She was born in Spain, in 1970, by the sea, in Valencia, and lives inland, in Cuenca, between the sea and mountain, sea and mountain.

Paula has always read, written, and told stories, and at the age of four she achieved her greatest feat: writing her own name. “You just have to change an h to a u” his father told her and, since then, she has not stopped writing.

She studied Romance Philology, graduated in Humanities and has a Master's Degree in Reading Promotion and Children's Literature. She has received numerous complementary training courses in the field of Literature, Narration and Puppetry.

Paula sees, and listens, and tells, and writes, and tells what she writes to tell it again and again.

She has given workshops and conferences and participated in various national and international professional meetings. She has performed as a storyteller in libraries, theatres, hospitals, cafes, bars, and on the street...

She has published several articles on Literature and several illustrated albums. Gallito Pelón was included in the White Ravens 2014 list and The mightiest has been awarded by the Fundación Cuatrogatos in 2017.

She was born in Madrid in 1952 and trained as a teacher, although she has been dedicated to illustration for more than 20 years. She doesn't like Sundays. Going to the movies and to the countryside with friends is what she likes the most. She reads in bed and it is the first thing she does as soon as she gets up and the last thing she does when the day is over. Her favourite author is John Ford.

She has published works in Editorial COMBEL, Editorial Barcanova, Edelvives, Pearson-Alhambra, Baula, Narval Editores, the children's magazine Cavall Fort, Kalandraka, Ediciones La  Fragrance  and  Editorial LYNX among others. In addition to being on the honour list for the 2014 illustration award.
