School Library Journal
"The bright, solid-seeming, colored-pencil cartoon illustrations are both eye-catching and humorous. . . . Not only a heartwarming tale of a young child and her grandmother, this is also an excellent introduction to the art of the curandera and the concept of alternative medicine in general."

"A nice introduction to the language, traditions and the ways of the Hispanic culture.
