About this title:

Synopsis: Con la valentía y el ingenio de Gertrudis las hormigas salen triunfadoras de la singular batalla que libran en contra del elefante Mandamás.

From Publishers Weekly: Grade 3-5-Although Paropillo is listed as the author of this fictional medieval manuscript, it soon becomes clear to adult readers that he is just another creation of the book's actual author, Nez. It is the epic tale of an evil elephant who is humbled by a mere ant. Mandam s the Evil is a marauding pachyderm that wreaks havoc in the ant colony. At the order of their queen, the ant army tries fruitlessly to combat him but only one ant, Gertrudis, manages to find his Achilles heel. Radosh's illustrations are done in crisp, clear colors with the figures heavily outlined in black and stippled for texture. In most of the pictures, the elephant is shown only in fragments so as to contrast with the miniscule size of the ants. The format of the poem, from the rhymed quatrains to the descriptive chapter headings, is carefully designed to give the impression of a medieval text that was recently unearthed by Nez. Unfortunately, the language employed also tends to the medieval. Most Spanish-speaking U.S. school children will find this text very heavy going. Only those with a solid education from their home countries will be able to tackle this on their own. The story, though, is so interesting and Radosh's illustrations so skillfully rendered that teachers and librarians may want to use this book for story times or as a class project. It would be a superb vocabulary builder for the middle grades.Maria Otero-Boisvert, "Criticas"
