Editorial Reviews

Review

**STARRED REVIEW**
"While the tale itself will appeal to lovers of adventure and myth, the author’s note adds an important historical and cultural depth that should not be bypassed. Feathered Serpent has all the literary elements of a good story and can be used to teach genre, narrative, history, or just quality literature."―
Booklist

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Tonatiuh’s familiar flat-perspective digitally collaged illustrations are particularly strong on the designerly element here, ranging from the playful. . .to the rhythmic elegance of the silhouetted fish and birds."―
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Tonatiuh’s illustration style draws on Nahua visual writing systems, emulating the symmetry, balanced lines, and prominent profile and aerial viewpoints found in Indigenous codices. . .reward[s] careful examination as textures pop and engage the viewer." ―
Horn Book Magazine

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Tonatiuh’s artwork—familiar in form, electric in spirit—astonishes in this retelling of a Mesoamerican creation story. Told with succinct clarity and a hint of mischief, this rendition begs for rereads... Simply spellbinding." ―
Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Hand-drawn, digitally collaged art, incorporating Mesoamerican styles and motifs, deepens the power of Tonatiuh’s tale, a tantalizing slice of Mesoamerica’s rich stories." ―
Publishers Weekly

"Modern touches and warm color palette make for vibrant, expressive spreads. Wondrous landscapes magnify Quetzalcóatl's formidable and heroic quest... With prose that is accessible and has the abiding quality of myth,
Feathered Serpent and the Five Suns feels both classic and refreshing."―Shelf Awareness
