Talking Eagle and the Lady of Roses: The Story of Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe

Talking Eagle and the Lady of Roses: The Story of Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the traditional story, told simply and elegantly, of how Juan Diego meets the beautiful Lady on a windswept hilltop in December and carries her message to the disbelieving bishop. The Lady fills Juan's cloak with full-blooming roses and impresses her image on its fibers as a sign for the bishop to fulfill her request of building a house of prayers. The story tells of how, over many years, countless hands built the great church dedicated to the Lady of Roses, Nuestra Senora Guadalupe on the hill of Tepeyac.

Review:

"This tender story tells of the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe to an indigenous healer, Talking Eagle, who had converted to Catholicism, becoming Juan Diego. When Mary instructs Juan Diego to tell the bishop to build a 'house of prayers' on the hill upon which she appears, he is unable to persuade the bishop until Mary produces blooming roses in December. Rendered in dazzling jewel tones, Córdova's drawings possess a quiet radiance; while the story skims over the history of Spain's colonization of Mexico, Gollogly's afterword notes that 'onversion... was often enforced at the point of a sword.' Ages 5 — up. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWxyz LLC)
