I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to work on translating a few children stories for Revista Tus.
It's a bit embarrassing, but the truth is that I enjoyed reading the stories I translated very much, and after that, browsing through the other material, presumably kids stuff, it was a pleasure. The material gathered and presented is very good and should be seen by as many people as possible. It would be a pity if it wouldn't. The illustrations too, are very inspiring and obviously very talented people have teamed together to produce Revista Tus for the enjoyment of kids and adults as well.

I am truly grateful to Mr Dan Masca for giving us the opportunity to participate in this project, and I congratulate each and every one of the participants for putting together and launching this exciting project called “Revista Tus.” The final result is exciting, much more impressive than I initially imagined when I received a long list of poems to translate. While working on this material I was very impressed with the work of Mediana Stan. Her ranges of subjects, her general culture background, as well as her detailed knowledge of botany, zoology and even astronomy were very impressive. In my view, the story of Myrmidone the Caterpillar, a fairy tale describing the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly, contains all the elements of a good screenplay: itls full of suspense, drama, intrigue, love, itls got humour and a happy ending, and would make a good animated movie. But itls not her only impressive story; so are the other folklore-like stories, such as “The Bridels Dish” and “Milky Valley”, as well as the dramatic poems “Ink” and “Ann the Flower Girl.” By saying this I donlt want to lower the standing of other material on this site, such as the stories translated from other languages, the story of Frederick the Elephant, that of Price Argyelius and Ileana the Beauty, or the smaller funny stuff such as ”˜The Game of Who Are Youl by Katia Nanu or the series of poems for every day of the week by Valentin Marica.
Itls a collection of gems, and each one is valuable.
I wish Revista Tus all the best and much success with readers of all ages. It deserves to be successful, it has been created with love, care and talent.

My name's Liviu and I made some of the drawings and animations you'll find on this site we dedicated to you. We're grown-ups, that's right, but we're the kind of grown-ups that haven't forgotten what it's like to play, either with the pencil or with the mouse, or writing stories that we enjoy at least as much as you do. I had a lot of fun, for example, while animating Zurinka, was a bit nervous as Razelana lived her fantastic adventures, rooted for Mirmidona and her battle while I was drawing her... As I said before, I hope you'll enjoy them at least as much as I did. What am I saying, "I hope"? I know it! And don't be shy, write to us, let us know what you liked, what you'd like to see in this (so far) online kids magazine called Tus (Ink). Untile next time, be good! Back to drawing. :)
