Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- An easy biography , combined with a brief and accurate explanation of the Battle of Puebla, which occurred during Juarez's presidency and is the basis for the holiday celebrated on the fifth of May ( Cinco de Mayo ) . Palacio's vivid, informal writing will appeal to readers. Her facts are well researched, and transitions are fairly smooth. There is an introductory note by Alex Haley and an end note about Cinco de Mayo that briefly summarizes the main ideas. The stylized illustrations are simple and informative. There are no source notes, glossary, or index. Overall, a book that will bring a remarkable person to the attention of readers of all ethnicities.-- Graciela Italiano, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
