Winner Blurb: 

"Colón has created a new tall-tale heroine, Doña Flor, whose presence fills the pages of this book.  She gazes above the mountains, her eye looks through a doorway, and she dwarfs the mighty puma.  The spectacular illustrations perfectly match the story and accurately reflect the culture and landscape of the American Southwest," said Award Committee Chair Barbara Scotto.
