Summary of Isla Summary of Isla Reviews for Isla An Excerpt from Isla
Rosalba is going on an imaginary journey to the Caribbean island where her grandmother grew up. Through her abuela's eyes, Rosalba visits with relatives who still live on la isla and sees the beautiful terrain of the island? from the lush, tropical rain forest to the bustling old city. Along the way Rosalba and her grandmother visit a busy fruit market, then cool off with a swim in the turquoise sea filled with colorful fish. Their magical trip is brought to life by Elisa Kleven's shimmering collage artwork. "Dorros's language is rich and magical? readers fly to la isla, too. Kleven's art is whimsical and quiltlike, crowded with sweet things and surprises."? School Library Journal
