"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, promised to be true to 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 wake her. As promised Popoca stayed by her side."-- Provided by publisher.

Such a great Mayan story to help little ones connect the dots on a more complicated history. The illustrations are beautifully depicted in Mayan fashion; they are intriguing and kept my daughter (4) very entertained. She has watched Moana several times, so understanding that this story is similar (the princess and the warrior turning into volcanoes) was fun for her. She has requested to read it multiple times a day since we first read it.

If you want to introduce your children to different cultures in an easy-to-understand way, this the book for it! Highly, highly recommend it. It illustrated "war" in a way that was very appropriate; also love, kindness, dedication, and even betrayal by trusted people.

Memorably illustrated in Mayan fashion (profiles only) Duncan retells the ancient legend of Sleeping Woman (Itzaccihuatl) and her watchful warrior, Popoca (Popocatepetl), immortalized as volcanos above Mexico City. A tale to cherish.
