Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
This love story and transformation tale is part of the publisher's "Folk Tales Series" (other titles include Ashes For Gold: A Tale from Mexico, and The Little Brown Jay: A Tale from India). While the theme of forbidden love is an adult one, the little jeweled bird that visits red flowers is likely to capture a young reader's interest. Ramirez provides a personal introduction, and the book includes brief back matter on Puerto Rico and its people.
