Everyone knows about Mary and her little lamb. But do you know Maria?
With gorgeous, Peruvian-inspired illustrations and English and Spanish retellings, Angela Dominguez gives a fresh new twist to the classic rhyme. Maria and her mischievous little llama will steal your heart.
Angela Dominguez was born in Mexico City, grew up in the great state of Texas, and now resides in San Francisco. She has illustrated four previous books for children. As a child, she loved reading books and making a mess creating pictures. She’s delighted to still be doing both.
"A fresh and enjoyable reimagining of a traditional children’s rhyme." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This is a scene young children will return to again and again." - The Horn Book
