Irene, La Valiente

Irene, La Valiente

Irene braves a fierce snowstorm to deliver a dress her mother has made for the Duchess. Although she faces terrible dangers, it's all worthwhile in the end. In Spanish.

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3-- Irene must deliver a dress made especially for the duchess for the grand ball that evening. Pale full-color drawings illustrate the girl's bravery as she battles the wind and snow to reach the palace. Steig's clever use of language and colorful vocabulary is not lost here. An excellent read-aloud choice.

William Steig
