KIRKUS REVIEW

Handsome, colorful drawings fail to compensate for an uninspired text in this retelling of Pizarro's search for the Land of Gold, Peru. From swineherd to foot soldier to conqueror, Pizarro travels a bloody route, full of movie heroics, over the bodies of men, to become Conqueror of Peru and the Incas. Somehow to us, murder even with a Spanish priest planting a cross next to the flag isn't pretty reading. Good-looking de luxe merchandise.
