"Award-winning author Duncan Tonatiuh reimagines one of Mexico's cherished legends. Princess Izta had many wealthy suitors but dismissed them all. When a mere warrior, Popoca, promised to be true to her and stay always by her side, Izta fell in love. The emperor promised Popoca if he could defeat their enemy Jaguar Claw, then Popoca and Izta could wed. When Popoca was near to defeating Jaguar Claw, his opponent sent a messenger to Izta saying Popoca was dead. Izta fell into a deep sleep and, upon his return, even Popoca could not wake her. As promised Popoca stayed by her side."--… (mere)

The Princess and the Warrior is a traditional Mexican story about a Princess and the Warrior who falls in love with her, offering to slay an enemy of her father's, the king, to win her hand. It is based on ancient Aztec legends about the origin of the twin mountains in Mexico City, and incorporates some Aztec words in the text. The illustrations by award-winning artist Duncan Tonatiuh are so vivid and expressive, kids will be drawn in.

This Traditional Literature children’s book is written and illustrated by Duncan Tonatiuh, winner of the Pura Belpré award in 2017). This is a story that explains how two volcano’s came into being outside Mexico City, one named Popocatépetl, the other called Iztaccíhuatl. The story opens with the Mexican princess Izta (daughter of an emperor) shown teaching children poetry or flor y canto. Izta is noted by her people as beautiful and kind but who also wasn’t interested in the many suitors that visit offering gifts. That is, until a warrior name Popoca turns up, recognizes her for her kindness, and while he doesn’t have fancy gifts, he pledges to stay with her no matter what happens if she chooses him as her mate. The princess was so moved by his humbleness, she fell in love with Popoca. Much like many classic stories, the emperor wasn’t happy that his daughter wants to marry a poor soldier so the father sends Popoca on a dangerous mission of war to prove bravery and worthiness. It was a fierce battle and Popoca and his brave men were finally winning over the odds against them when their rival sent a message to Izta, lying to her that Popoca had been killed in battle. She was so sad, she willingly took a potion sent by the rival that puts her in such a deep sleep that the prince carries her limp body to the top of a mountain to wait to see if she’ll awaken. As he promised, he stays by her side. Even when it snows and they both become so still, they’re covered in the snow together. The book ends showing the two volcano’s the warrior and princess eventually become as they stay together forever, dedicated and side-by-side above the city. The glossary in the back explains that while the words in the book look a lot like Spanish, they’re in a language of the Nahuatl (Aztec) people who first told this story. The author’s note says while that the legend’s author is unknown, the story has been passed down through multiple generations of storytellers over the past many centuries with different variations. This book appealed to kindergartens during a read-aloud and the vivid pictures are easy to view by the whole group listening. ( )

The Princess and the Warrior is a beautiful adaptation of a beloved Mexican legend that chronicles the "birth" of two of the largest mountains in Mexico. Izta, a kind and beautiful princess, is courted by many suitors, none of which is acceptable to her. They lavish her with gifts, which isn't what is important to her. She enjoys poetry (flor y canto) and teaches it to the people planting corn. These are the people she enjoys spending time with. A warrior, Popoca, commits to love her for who she is and to always stay by her side "as long as tonatiuh rises and the cenzontle bird sings." She falls in love with his honesty and kindness, but her father (the emperor) doesn't want her to marry a common soldier. He tells Popoca that he can marry Izta IF he defeats (once and for all!) Jaguar Claw, who he has a long-standing war with. Popoca marches into battle with his best soldiers, fights hard and is close to winning. Jaguar Claw smells defeat and devises a plan to take what is most important to Popoca. He bribes a messenger to deliver the news that Popoca has died, along with a potion to "soother her grief." As expected, Izta is distraught and drinks the potion. She falls into a deep sleep, which is how Popoca finds her when he returns. He carries her to the 'tepetl" (mountain), hoping the fresh air will wake her. Time passes and the cool air changes to snow. Still, Popoca kneels beside her, just as he said he would. The snow continues to fall and she doesn't wake. Over time, the falling snow covers both of them and they become mountains -- Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl,. Izta is dormant and Popoca spews ash, trying to wake his princess. This book has beautiful illustrations with colors and shapes true to the time period and geographic area. It is one version a legend passed down orally through the generations. I appreciate that Nahuatl words (which have become part of Spanish) are sprinkled in throughout the story and a "Glossary" at the back shows their pronunciations and definitions. It's a beautiful story to explain the emergence of Mexico's second and third largest mountains at 17,160 feet and 17,802 feet, respectively. The title has understandably won nine awards and is a great addition to a library collection.

Talented Mexican picture-book author and artist Duncan Tonatiuh here relates the Aztec origin story of Iztaccíhuatl and Popocatépetl, the two volcanoes which tower over Mexico City. It is a tale of the beautiful, kindhearted princess Izta, who is wooed by many great men, but who gives her heart to the warrior Popoca. Izta's father, displeased that his daughter should marry a humble warrior, promises to give his consent to the marriage if Popoca defeats their people's enemy, Jaguar Claw. But although Popoca fights bravely, and is triumphant, treachery robs him of his happy homecoming, and he returns to find his love sunk into an eternal sleep...

The Princess and the Warrior: A Tale of Two Volcanoes is the second book I have read from Tonatiuh, after his Funny Bones: Posada and His Day of the Dead Calaveras, and I found it very enjoyable. I have not read a great deal of Aztec mythology, although I would certainly like to read more. The story here is simply told, and the accompanying artwork, drawn and then digitally collaged, has an appealing folk-art style that feels very well-matched to the text. A brief author's note gives more information at the rear, and a helpful glossary of the Nahuatl (Aztec) words used in the story is also included. Recommended to young folklore lovers, and to readers interested in Aztec and/or Mexican lore. ( )

The Princess and the Warrior is about a princess who falls in love with the best warrior in the land. However, in order to marry her the king told him that he needed to defeat the enemy. A tale about love and unfortunate events Ducan Tonatiuh tells his reader about how two volcanoes came to be in a certain part of Mexico. I would say that this book can be read at the beginning to initiate how volcanoes are made with in mind that there is a misconception in the book. Or I would read this book at the end to have students remember how the formation of volcanoes scientifically happens with again in mind that there are misconceptions in the book. It is a tale and fiction book however, it might interest students to learn about volcanoes, earthquakes, and how they are formed. ( )
