About the Author

Arthur Dorros ( vivió en Nueva York en donde disfrutaba de observar la ciudad desde el tejado de su edificio. Le fascina el gran número de personas en Estados Unidos que conservan fuertes lazos con sus orígenes étnicos, pues tienen la riqueza de dos culturas y de dos lenguas. El Sr. Dorros es el autor de Tonight Is Carnaval (en español bajo el título de Por Fin es Carnaval) y de otros aclamados libros para niños, entre ellos Alligator Shoes, seleccionado por Reading Rainbow. Actualmente vive en Seattle, Washington.


Praise for Isla

"Dorros's language is rich and magical--readers fly to la isla, too. Kleven's art is whimsical and quiltlike, crowded with sweet things and surprises."--School Library Journal

"Vivid illustrations with myriad details bring the tropical scenes to life, and the well-chosen Spanish words and phrases are easily understood. Glossary."--Horn Book

"The little girl and her grandmother, first seen flying over New York City in Abuela(1991), take off on another imaginary flight, this time to the Caribbean island where Abuela grew up. Isla is a tropical treasure."--Booklist
