Recensie(s)

The book does an excellent job of chronicling Hernandez's work as cultural explorer and celebrator of both pre-Columbian past and Mexican present...Tonatiuh's signature stylized figures in side view and flattened perspective are surprisingly well suited to dancing. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Danza! is a beautifully illustrated picture book celebration of Hernandez's life and of the rich history of dance in Mexico. Danza! will enthrall and inspire young readers . . . --Midwest Book Review Employing his his customary brand of Mixtec-inspired collage, Tonatiuh makes expert use of photographic bits of lace, cloth, and hair to bring warmth to the dancers, who dip and turn on each spread. --Publishers Weekly Tonatiuh's signature Mixtec-inspired illustrations depict graceful, energetic, and colorful folklorico performances, representing traditions of celebration and community. --International Literacy Association Tonatiuh's recognizable illustration style, inspired by Mixtec art and with well-chosen photo-collage elements on costumes and accessories, is par- ticularly resonant with a subject whose own desire was to preserve and celebrate Mexican arts and culture. A beautiful look at one of Mexico's most cherished institutions. --The Horn Book **STARRED REVIEW** Tonatiuh's Mixtec-inspired illustrations capture the movement and vibrancy of El Ballet Folklorico and pay homage to the artistic vision of one of the world's most beloved dancers. --School Library Journal **STARRED REVIEW** This beautifully designed, large-format picture book is a showcase for Tonatiuh's distinctive illustrations, drawings with digital collage elements that add colors, patterns, and textures to strong, well-delineated forms. --Booklist **STARRED REVIEW** Tonatiuh tells Hernandez's story with careful attention to detail and with obvious admiration for the subject... His digitized, hand-drawn illustrations are striking. They showcase, in his signature style based on Mixtec art, the beauty and grace of many different dance styles. --Kirkus
