Isabel Campoy and Alma Flor Ada, Hernandez's first book for young readers brings the sights and stories of Latin America toa new generation of graphic-novel fans around the world.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This collection of three beloved Latin American folktales is charmingly illustrated in Hernandez's iconic style. The first is the collection's namesake, about a mighty girl who was cast out by jealous sisters, finds her way to a kingdom, falls in love with the prince, and, in a delightful turn of events, saves him by slaying a many-headed dragon. The second, Martina Martinez and Perez the Mouse, might be known to many as Cucarachita Martina, a story about a vain woman (or roach, in some versions) who doesn't know how to save her husband when he falls into a pot of soup. The last, Tup and the Ants, goes to show that laziness isn't necessarily a bad thing, if you're resourceful. All three fables have a moral, of course, and the informative back matter contains a note and glossary informing readers about folktales and storytelling practices over the years. This beautifully designed collection, with amiable art in lovely full color, is perfect for bedtime read-aloud or a lesson on traditional folktales.--Pino, Kristina Copyright 2018 Booklist"
