About the Author:

Antonio Hernandez Madrigal was born and raised int he state of Michoacan, Mexico. Inspired by his favorite author, Henry David Thoreau, he came to the United States in search of better working opportunities. He began his writing career in 1994.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-7, younger for reading aloud. With dePaola's richly colored, robust illustrations, this is a tiny treasure of hard-to-find Mexican folktales that sparkles with wisdom and wonder. The selection is small--five legends, one each from five of the indigenous cultures of Mexico. At the conclusion of each legend, Madrigal provides a brief description of the culture and customs of the people to whom the legend is attributed. However, he provides no source notes of any kind for his resonant retellings. And, unfortunately, the decorative motifs used throughout the text are sometimes in color and sometimes not. A rare collection of Mexican folktales for children, this valuable gem would have benefited from more professional polish. Annie Ayres
