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.

I liked this but the illustrations weren't doing it for me.

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.
