The Dragon Slayer: Folktales from Latin America by Jaime Hernandez, F. Isabel Campoy

I liked the flavor of these Latin American tales.  The characters are colorful, the women are strong, and there's a bit of magic thrown in, too.  It's bad enough one married a mouse, one is even brave enough to kill a seven-headed dragon!

TOON Graphics and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published today.

I really liked the bright graphics and how the stories turned out.  They could have been tragic but they are not.  Each story was well worth a read and are suitable for young ones.  There is a pleasant rhythm to the words and some words are repeated with a bit more added to the story on each page.

This one is a little treasure that would be a nice addition to child's graphic novel collection.
