Vanessa Rossi about this book: Paxilla and the Feathered Serpent is full of great artwork and great imagination. It is based in the jungles of ancient Mesoamerica, right before the Spaniards come. The main character is a Indian girl named Paxilla (spine of starfish). Together with the ancient aztec deity Quetzalcoatl they team up to fight the Spanish conquistadors. This story takes you back in time to a world where the Aztecan lived and fought to keep their gold and way of life. The feathered serpent came to a unlikely girl where she transformed from little gilate to fierce warrior. Your child will love all. The art inside and the great adventure Paxilla goes on. Go back in time and imagine the journey. Take the trip and use the imagination that we all have deep inside all of us. The story is about fighting for your home and all you stand for. Believing in yourself to do what is right. Overcoming obstacles and always having faith.
what to read next: if you read and liked this book...
Would make a very good animated movie. It reminded me of the book of life and the jungle book. High level of imagination, the art work is awesome, gives the child reading this book to relate with while reading the story. [by Mike]
