Spanish short stories Hello, I'm looking for short stories originally written in Spanish that are good for ninth-grade native Spanish speakers. It should be age and level-appropriate but any length is fine. (And it is especially helpful if there are available English translations!) Thanks for the help!

Hi. I wrote a translation of Oscar Wilde's "The Selfish Giant" and posted it on my website: www.spanishinput.com I haven't written more translations since then for lack of time (or commitment?), but if there's enough interest I'll add it to the to-do list. Just tell me what your favorite short stories in English are. They must have been published before 1923. (That is, they must be in the public domain).
