Críticas There is a solemn tone to the simple storytelling which simultaneously evokes the antiquity of the tale and makes it accessible to younger independent readers. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books **STARRED REVIEW** Award-winning author/illustrator Tonatiuh successfully retells this ancient tale using his distinctive and artistic illustrations with spare but effective text... Use this Aztec legend to inspire readers while teaching a bit about dramatic irony; a first purchase for all folklore collections.--School Library Journal **STARRED REVIEW** A skillfully crafted recounting of a somber tale of love and devotion.--Publishers Weekly **STARRED REVIEW** Tonatiuh's storytelling grows more assured with each title; this may be his best yet.--The Horn Book **STARRED REVIEW** The appealing story the powerful illustrations and the celebration of the Aztec culture make this a sure thing for those looking for a story while an extensive author's note goes a step beyond adding to the impact of the tale with a great deal of historical and cultural information.--Booklist **STARRED REVIEW** Using his trademark digital collage style the author crafts brutally stunning scenes full of sharp angles using a palette of earthy evocative colors. The text pops with incisive purpose making every action feel monumental... Equal parts melancholic and transcendent--a genuine triumph.--Kirkus Reseña del editor Award-winning author Duncan Tonatiuh reimagines one of Mexico's cherished legends. Princess Izta had many wealthy suitors but dismissed them all. When a mere warrior Popoca offered to love her and stay always by her side Izta fell in love. The emperor promised Popoca if he could defeat their enemy Jaguar Claw then Popoca and Izta could wed. When Popoca was near to defeating Jaguar Claw his opponent sent a messenger to Izta saying Popoca was dead. Izta fell into a deep sleep and upon his return even Popoca could not awake her. As promised Popoca stayed by her side. So two volcanoes were formed: Izatachhihuatl who continues to sleep and Popocatepetl who spews ash and smoke trying to wake his love. Biografía del autor Duncan Tonatiuh's books have won numerous awards: Diego Rivera won the Pura Belpre Illustration Award; Pancho Rabbit won two Pura Belpre Honor awards for illustration and narrative; and Separate Is Never Equal won the prestigious Sibert Honor Award. He lives in Mexico.
