Reviews

**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
**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**

"Tonatiuh's storytelling grows more assured with each title; this may be his best yet."--The Horn Book
**STARRED REVIEW**

"A skillfully crafted recounting of a somber tale of love and devotion."--Publishers Weekly
**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
"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
