Uleyli is a princess–but she isn’t happy with all that comes with it. She’d rather daydream and create art than learn how to rule her people. When a Spanish boy, Juan Ortiz, is captured by Ulelyi’s father, she intervenes on his behalf and begins to plot her escape from her village. As she dreams of a new life in Cuba, Uleyli encounters a series of problems that put her dreams at risk. To solve her problems she will need to use the power of her creativity to help save her new friend, her village, and herself.

This graphic novel was inspired by the true story of a young Native American woman, Ulele, known as Florida’s Pocahontas. The beautiful full-color illustrations and simple text paint a picture of life in 16th-century Native American villages in what is now the southeastern United States. This is a story celebrating Ulele’s creativity and non-violent heroism.

Perfect for young fans of graphic novels (ages 9 – 12) who are interested in learning more about US history.

Reviews:

“We enjoyed the book very much. It was right on target with our Native American Unit and the students were very interested and engaged. It gave them more insight as to what life was actually like then …. especially as Uleyli is a child around their age.” –Kerri Stolz, Fifth Grade Teacher, Celebration K-8, Celebration, Florida (The Town That Disney Built)

 

“This was a real treat–an exciting story with a powerful message, what’s not to love? It’s always a pleasure to read a children’s book with a female main character who uses her brain to solve her problems (Uleyli’s passion for art is really inspiring). Plus, the Native American history in the book was all new to me and very interesting. This would be a great gift for kids–or adults, honestly–who love art, adventure, or history.” -Amanda Lee, Toronto, Ontario
