alf123 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am 13 years old, still not serious for a career. I want make small desktop applications. The author of Learning Perl said that it is not for beginners. And I found three books that do not need experience: Elements of Programming with Perl (L Andrew Johnson). Teach Yourself Perl 5 in 21 Days (David Ut). Beginning Perl, Second Edition (James Lee). What is the best?. Thanks. OFF: Pardon my English very basic. I am Argentinian and I am learning English. If the book is in English there isnt a problem. Thanks.
