"Lopez's bright portraits of notable Hispanics have the large scale and graphic discipline of poster art, while Engle manages to compress the sweep of a biography into a sharp, compact free-verse poem about each life, from childhood on. Some are famous [...] All faced challenges [...] and made lasting contributions." ―New York Times Book Review on Bravo!
"this book is a welcome addition to schools and libraries, as it expands the canon of historically significant individuals in the United States in such a lyrical and aesthetically pleasing manner." ―School Library Journal, starred review, on Bravo!
"This book features the lives of a variety of Latinos who faced life's challenges with aplomb and in their own ways. . . each person is stunningly portrayed in López's strong and vibrant style; opposite is a first-person biographical poem that provides a glimpse into its subject's life." ―Kirkus Reviews on Bravo!
"López (who illustrated Engle’s Drum Dream Girl) creates bold, dramatic portraits of the subjects, which include José Martí, Pura Belpré, Tito Puente, and César Chávez. Capsule biographies are a welcome supplement to the poems" ―Publishers Weekly on Bravo!
The Poet Slave of Cuba:
"An absolutely lovely book . . . that should be read by young and old, black and white, Anglo and Latino." ―School Library Journal, starred review
"Readers will hear the stories―and never forget them." ―Booklist, starred review
"The moving poetry and finely crafted story will draw readers in and leave them in tears and in awe." ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review
