Booklist Reviews 2017 August #1

In this bilingual twist on a classic fairy tale, the mother of a young prince does all she can to make sure that no maiden who is unworthy will win the heart of her son. The prince is very lonely and longs to find his princess, and when a girl comes along looking for a place to rest while on her journey home, the prince instantly falls in love. His mama searches through the garden for an elegant pea that is sure to determine whether this girl is truly the one. When the girl rises after a restless and painful night, the prince rejoices, secretly glad that—like his mama—he, too, had a trick up his sleeve. Martinez-Neal's illustrations, featuring stylishly exaggerated figures rendered in warm tones and delicate lines, are inspired by the textile designs of the indigenous people of Peru. With eye-catching details on every page, this book is sure to capture the imaginations of young readers. Spanish words are sprinkled throughout, and clever rhymes make this a book to enjoy more than once. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

This rhymed retelling of the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale incorporates a plethora of Spanish words and phrases; the illustrations--created with acrylics, colored pencils, and graphite on handmade paper--set the story in Peru, with clothing and other textiles inspired by those of several different Indigenous Peruvian communities. Both text and art emit much energy and humor. Glos. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
