"Award-winning author Duncan Tonatiuh reimagines one of Mexico's cherished legends. Princess Izta had many wealthy suitors but dismissed them all. When a mere warrior, Popoca, promised to be true to her and stay always by her side, Izta fell in love. The emperor promised Popoca if he could defeat their enemy Jaguar Claw, then Popoca and Izta could wed. When Popoca was near to defeating Jaguar Claw, his opponent sent a messenger to Izta saying Popoca was dead. Izta fell into a deep sleep and, upon his return, even Popoca could not wake her. As promised Popoca stayed by her side."-- Provided by publisher.

Memorably illustrated in Mayan fashion (profiles only) Duncan retells the ancient legend of Sleeping Woman (Itzaccihuatl) and her watchful warrior, Popoca (Popocatepetl), immortalized as volcanos above Mexico City. A tale to cherish.
