This bilingual picture book recounts the life of Zaragoza, commander of the Mexican army and navy during the Battle of Puebla, and the Mexican army’s unexpected win against a much stronger foe. Today this victory is celebrated in the United States as Cinco de Mayo, a day to commemorate the Mexican roots of many US citizens.
