Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School–In 1680, 15-year-old Serafina is captured along with 11 other Pueblo Indians who are accused of plotting against the Spaniards governing New Mexico. She speaks fluent Spanish and is also a storyteller, and a bargain is struck with the governor: in return for telling the lonely widower a story, one of the prisoners will be released. Each evening Serafina delights him with a tale; next morning he questions and releases a prisoner. Most stories are familiar to him, like "Cinderella" retold as "Miranda's Gift." Others are Indian. But the governor's enemies are aghast at his friendship with Serafina, believing that the natives should be punished harshly, not freed. At last it is Serafina's turn to be tried. If the governor releases her, an agent of the Inquisition will take her away to be tried for heresy, so he decrees that she must remain in his custody for the present, her "prison" a room behind his kitchen. The short, action-packed folktales are perfect for reluctant readers and are linked by the story of the struggle between the Pueblos, determined to preserve their religion and culture, and the settlers, determined to suppress and convert them.–Molly Connally, Chantilly Regional Library, VA --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

Anaya blends Spanish folktales with Pueblo Indian myths to create a charming New Mexican version of the Arabian Nights. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
