Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-8–This is the Spanish version of the 2008 graphic-novel retelling of Washington Irving’s tale. The small town of Tarry has a new schoolteacher named Ichabod Crane. As he adjusts to his post, he hears rumors that a terrifying headless horseman is on the loose in the nearby valley. Crane, being a superstitious fellow, must face his fears as he crosses creepy Sleepy Hollow in search of beautiful Katrina, his pupil and the daughter of wealthy farmer Balt Van Tassel. However, Crane is not Katrina’s only suitor. The brawny Brom will stop at nothing to spend time with the striking young woman. Smith’s full-color illustrations and Hoena’s narration rejuvenate the famously spooky legend of the 1800s. Notes about Washington Irving and the real Sleepy Hollow, discussion questions, and essay ideas will extend learning beyond the story.–Jessica McClinton, King County Library System, Auburn, WA
