Monteiro Lobato (1882 – 1948) was one of the most influential Brazilian writers of the 20th century. A precursor of children's literature, his works achieved immense popularity with textbooks and children's books that use simple language.

Reinações de Narizinho (1931), Caçadas de Pedrinho (1933) and O Picapau Amarelo (1939) are his most famous works and Emília, Pedrinho, Cuca, or Saci Pererê are characters that the whole of Brazil has known for several generations.

As an adult, Monteiro Lobato received an inheritance that allowed him to pursue his passion and publish his first short stories in newspapers and magazines. He also became an editor, also starting to print books in Brazil at a time when Brazilian books were published in Paris or Lisbon.

Although we have little information about this letter, its tone is evidently funny and mocking, a rare testament to Monteiro Lobato's cheeky personality.
