[one of those talks] Mini-FAQ

Q: How old are the kids?
A: Mafalda is 5 years old in the beginning. Felipe is one year older.

Q: Where does Quino live?
A: Buenos Aires and Milán.

Q: Does Quino have kids?
A: He's been married to Alicia since 1960, but they have no kids as far as I know.

Q: Did Quino kill Mafalda?
A: Some people have asked me to confirm or deny whether Mafalda was killed by a soup truck. That is not true.

NOTE: Each book (from the original compilations) doesn't actually represent a year in Mafalda's world. If they did, the kids would be in their mid-teens in the last book.
