Staff Reviews

"This romantic Mexican legend, richly illustrated with Pre-Colombian inspired art, tells of a star-crossed princess and warrior transformed into volcanoes that still endure as testaments to their love. Tender and tragic, Tonatiuh's gorgeous retelling will enchant young readers and book collectors alike."

— Meghan


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. So two volcanoes were formed: Iztaccihuatl, who continues to sleep, and Popocatepetl, who spews ash and smoke, trying to wake his love.
