"Laura Ortiz's narration of this timeless tale is a treat for listeners of both English and Spanish languages. Her singsong voice with its gentle tone fits perfectly with the lyrical story of a princesa who is put to the test by a protective mother. Ortiz flawlessly voices La Reina, El Pr’ncipe, and La Princesa, seamlessly moving from English to Spanish as the plot swiftly progresses. Notes of scheming, determination, and charm adorn this fairy tale as Ortiz whisks readers into a magical world. Listeners both young and old are sure to enjoy this evergreen title freshly retold with a Latin twist and filled with easy-to-learn Spanish words such as numbers from uno to cuatro and adjectives like suave, grande, and peque–o.
