Review: Prietita and the Ghost Woman/Prietita y la lloronaUser Review - Farrah - Goodreads
A great bilingual children's book that re-envisions (and reclaims) the legend of La Llorona. The artwork follows Anzaldua's storyline in a thoughtful way, but what really comes out of the text is a new way of thinking about La Llorona's story. Read full review
