From the Publisher:

Fiesta Femenina was awarded The Aesop Prize for 2001 by the American Folklore Society (the most outstanding book incoporating folklore published in English for children and young adults, both fiction and nonfiction); was acknowledged by Parents' Choice as a Recommended Winner (of the 2000+ products submited, less than 9% earned any level of recommendation) and received a "starred review" in the American Library Association's Booklist magazine. The Aesop Prize

From the Author:

Though this is my third book of adapted folklore, it is my most passionate. I think it combines two of my very strong interests: my profound connection to Mexican culture--which has deepened through many recent trips for specific festivals and events--and my psychological work on feminist issues.
