2018 Pura Belpré Illustrator Award winner
As a Hispanic person, it makes me really happy whenever I find books written by Latinas or Latinos that are done so well. La Princessa and the Pea is a beautifully illustrated picture book the portrays the Peruvian culture in an accurate and respectful way. With the intricate textiles and warm tones throughout the book, it is easy to see why La Princesa and the Pea was awarded the Pura Belpré Award for illustration. The characters within the story are so spirited, their expressions and feelings adding a wonderful sense of vibrancy to the story. In addition to this, Elya does a fantastic job incorporating the Spanish language and culture into an easy to digest picture book that does not require actual knowledge of the Spanish language in order to enjoy. The simple rhyming scheme also aids children in the learning of the pronunciation of new Spanish words. All in all, La Princesa and the Pea is a wonderfully illustrated picture book that puts a fun and Hispanic take on an old classic.
An adorable retelling of "The Princess and the Pea." In it, the Queen is looking for a suitable match for her son, the prince, but does not like anyone and no one will pass her test. In a fun twist, the prince decides for himself who his princess will be and outwits his mother to ensure he and the woman he loves will wed.
Absolutely loved the illustrations and humor in this new version of an old story.
A fun twist on an old classic. Wonderfully illustrated (the grumpy cat is my favorite), fun rhyming text and a very helpful glossary and pronunciation guide for the Spanish words.
