• [Roger Olmos] manages to make the reader think, to make him ask himself how much he can tolerate.
    Lluís Llort, El Punt AVui
  • At no time does Olmos ever tell us what we have to do or what we should do, but he gives us space for reflection. His goal is to raise awareness and to expand our perspective, in order for us to leave that unreal space in which we feel comfortable, becoming critical towards the exploitation and use of animals in the world of fashion, food industry or entertainment.

  • For a world with less tears and more smiles, of both humans and animals, give a copy of Wordless to your children (as well as to other people’s children), to allow them to open their eyes and realize that, sometimes, what grown-ups do is just really wrong
  • Wordless is such an expressive book that it even screams by itself.
    Cristina Bellacicco, Illustrator
  • Roger Olmos has produced a very important piece of work; one that might well be regarded as ‘Earthlings’ for Children. His book is a depiction of the interaction between humans and the other animals that does not shy away from illustrating how our mindless, callous use of them hurts them . Yet it depicts this use in a way that adults will find difficult to censor with any justification.

  • A specific goal: to show the relationship that humans have with animals. An innovative methodology: to draw those things that are part of each one of us, but that nobody wants to admit. The result is consciousness-raising, inspiring and emotional at the same time.
  • The look on the animals’ faces that Roger Olmos recreates in 'Wordless' hits you like a stake. At the same time, those same eyes generate an unusual empathy and make you think about and reconsider issues like no documentary, pamphlet or manifesto ever did.
  • I liked this book very much because I'm against animal abuse. I have decided that when I grow up, when I like vegetables, I will be a vegetarian and I will adopt animals in danger, not like tigers (I would love to, but no, it’s not right) or crocodiles because their place is in the jungle or in the desert, but dogs that have been abandoned and abused, starving cats ..

  • We can only say that this is an awesome book. Just wonderful.
    Paula Jarrin, Llibreria Al·lots
  • This beautiful and impressive book raises awareness about our relationship with the other animals and the respect we owe them as an essential step to respect ourselves.
    Rosa Montero. Journalist and writer. National Journalism Award 1981
  • All over the world there is a mounting sense of unease about the way in which we human beings have been mistreating and exploiting other living beings. In the most admirable way, Wordless encourages us to look at our fellow creatures with new eyes.
    JM Coetzee. Literature Nobel Prize Winner 2003
  • We are not the only beings capable of love and hate, joy and sorrow, fear and despair. Certainly we are not the only animals to experience pain and suffering. Through intriguing drawings, Wordless helps us remember that we ought to respect the amazing creatures with whom we share the planet.

  • We remain speechless when the veils, more or less subtle, that hide what’s behind a steak, a coat, a rifle or a children's laugh are finally raised. We can’t use words to talk to the cow, the fish, the mouflon or the dolphin, but with all those animals that we exploit we also share the same voice, look, pain, joy, in the end, life. Put yourself in their skin and open your eyes.
    Pablo de Lora, professor of Philosophy of Law and Bioethics at the Autonomous University of Madrid and author of "Justice for animals".
  • Nothing in this world is as miraculous and important as our ability to perceive the suffering of the others and to be sensitive to it. To respect animals’ lives, to feel fascinated by their proximity and to learn from them is the very first step prior to all the things we have to learn to be who we are. They are wonderful, generous and dazzling beings who can teach us everything we must learn to overcome our fear and uncertainty, and then yes: to born, to grow up, to live and to die as complete beings. Just like them. With them.
    Lolita Bosch, writer
  • I got speechless too facing the amount of suffering the humans cause to the other animals: panic, pain, captivity, exploitation. That’s why one day I said ENOUGH! and I decided to be their voice.
