Praise for Isla

“Dorros’s language is rich and magical—readers fly to la isla, too. Kleven’s art is whimsical and quiltlike, crowded with sweet things and surprises.”—School Library Journal

“Vivid illustrations with myriad details bring the tropical scenes to life, and the well-chosen Spanish words and phrases are easily understood. Glossary.”—Horn Book

“The little girl and her grandmother, first seen flying over New York City in Abuela(1991), take off on another imaginary flight, this time to the Caribbean island where Abuela grew up. Isla is a tropical treasure.”—Booklist
