By Francisco Serrano, Pablo Serrano (Illustrator)


One of ancient Mexico's most remarkable rulers, Nezahualc yotl was a brilliant poet, architect, and engineer. After reclaiming the throne stolen by his murderous uncle, the Poet King became a great ruler who built palaces, libraries, aqueducts, and gardens. Though he endured many tragedies, his poetry brought him comfort and secured his reputation as a literary master. Nezahualc yotl's amazing life and achievements are related here in a unique combination of biography and poetry. Though written at a child's level, this beautifully crafted and lushly illustrated story thrills and informs readers of all ages.
