Irene braves a fierce snowstorm to deliver a dress her mother has made for the Duchess. Although she faces terrible dangers, it's all worthwhile in the end. In Spanish.
Praise for Irene, La Valiente
“Despite a raging snowstorm, Irene, a dressmaker's daughter, offers to deliver the duchess's newly finished ball gown...With sure writing and well-composed, riveting art, Steig keeps readers with Irene every step of the long way.” —Starred, Booklist
“One of Steig's simplest stories [and] one of his best, a tale that has the force of a legend.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
