About this title


Presents the life of Josefa Ortiz de DomÂinguez, the wife of a Mexican colonial official, who took part in the planning for her country's independence, sent a crucial message, and ended up on the five-peso bill.

From Publishers Weekly:

Gr 3-5-This fictionalized story takes a major figure of Mexican history and brings her to life. As any Mexican pupil can tell you, Josefa Ortiz de Dom¡nguez has been immortalized on the five-peso bill as the stern figure of "La Corregidora." Through words taken from her personal correspondences, combined with archival images of her personal belongings, Do¤a Josefa is allowed to tell her own story. Readers come to know the character as a schoolgirl, young woman, newlywed, mother, and wife. As the history of the Mexican independence movement is recounted, Do¤a Josefa meets up with other famous figures who have also been "imprisoned" in their respective peso bills. At the end of the story, the feisty main character is liberated from her monetary confinement and shown to be the flesh-and-blood heroine that history has proven her to be. The delightful collage illustrations present amusing vignettes. An excellent addition to any school and public library collection.
