Prietita and the Ghost Woman

Prietita and the Ghost Woman
Anzaldúa, Gloria; Gonzalez, Maya Christina (Illustrator)

Ever since she can remember, Prietita has heard terrifying tales of la llorona -- the legendary ghost woman who steals children at night. Against a background of vibrant folk paintings, Gloria Anzaldua reinterprets, in a bilingual format, one of the most famous Mexican legends. In this version, Prietita discovers that la llorona is not what she expects, but rather a compassionate woman who helps Prietita on her journey of self-discovery.


Prietita becomes lost in the woods. Will she meet the frightening ghost woman?
