Booklist (Vol. 95, No. 18 (May 15, 1999))
Ages 5-8. Young Rosalinda loves her lemon tree and is distraught when she discovers that a man has stripped it of its lemons and left it damaged. She seeks advice from people in her village, but it's not until she meets up with La Anciana, the Old One, that she learns how to heal the tree and heal her heart. The story deals honestly with the pain of being robbed of a treasure, and also, by showing the thief with his impoverished family, conveys the need for compassion. Moreno's watercolor-and-pastel illustrations give the Mexican countryside a warm, softly textured appearance. The double-page spread showing the tree bursting with lemons, the yellow moon overhead, and the overjoyed little girl dancing underneath is particularly appealing.
