From Booklist:

MacArthur Fellow Martínez presents seven classic Latin American folktales of varying themes, all chosen because they are “dear to his heart.” Culled from diverse countries, including Argentina, Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Spain, the stories feature characters such as Martina the Cockroach, the Wedding Rooster, Madremonte (Mother of the Jungle), and the trickster Tlacuache (opossum). Averaging a dozen pages of bilingual text in English and Spanish, each story features a colorful, appealing full-page illustration, and attentive viewers may catch a few discrepancies between the images and the scenes described in the words. On one page, for example, the Mother of the Jungle appears with short tresses while the text states that she has “extremely long hair.” Martínez occasionally relies on choppy non sequiturs, and his narratives lack the literary and folkloric flair of Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy’s work. Nonetheless, his interpretations read aloud well (especially in Spanish) and make a strong contribution to a still relatively empty canon of bilingual, Latin American folktale offerings. Grades 1-4. --Andrew Medlar
