The Flame of Peace: A Tale of the Aztecs is the story of a young boy whose father dies in a conflict with a rival tribe. Before his father's death, he tells the boy that one day he might have to go in search of peace for the tribe. The boy does just that after his father's death, but has to get past a series of gods to do so. This book is interesting because it is unlike many other books I have read. The plot is different because I do not believe there are many books about children finding peace and halting wars. The best part of the book, in my opinion, is the illustrations. The illustrations are intricate and look like traditional art from when the book is set. It has a bunch of color and drew my focus on every page. ( )

I loved this book's artwork. It was beautifully in the genre of the folktale itself and lent so much to it. They really were just fantastic. Nice folktale, that was very much about how it can be even more difficult to create peace than war. Might use it when talking about conquistadors and Aztecs.

This book is the story of an Aztec, Two Flint. This book tells his story about how he wanted to restore peace to the people. He would have to face 9 evil demons. This story is very interesting to the reader and includes a lot of Aztec traditional art and mythology. This book is a good example of a Folk Tale because it has been passed down through generations. It might also be considered a myth because there is no way to prove this story to be true. ( )
