Product Details


“Exquisitely wrought story…. dePaola’s talent for crafting folktales is honed to near-perfection, and his pages glow with the soft sun-washed hues of the Southwest.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review of The Night of Las Posadas
“dePaola’s illustrations are not simply pictures designed to expand the text: his illustrations are the text. dePaola uses the influence of Byzantine and Romanesque art to depict and enlarge our understanding of character and humanity.”—SLJ, starred review of The Story of the Three Wise Kings
“The story has a simple dignity, but it is the artwork that takes center stage here. The spreads, which feature everyday occurrences… are magnificently staged.”—Booklist, review of the Legend of the Poinsettia
