This book is a Spanish tale about Bernal who is not rich or important, who is in love with Florinda, who comes from a wealthy influential family. It tells of how Bernal uses his resources to win over Florinda's father and be able to marry her.

I enjoyed reading The Spanish Tale of Bernal & Florinda because the story sends a very important message to its readers. Money should not buy love, but one who fights for it deserves it. Bernal, a charming but poor grasshopper keeper did not allow Florinda’s wealthy father dictate his daughter’s relationship with Bernal. In the end, Bernal deserves Florinda with his curiosity and inquisitiveness. This Spanish Tale ends the story with “But to this day a splendid marble tomb stands in the cathedral of Seville.” The creativity and excitement of the Spanish Tale keeps readers interested and intrigued in the message of the story.
