This book revolves around similar cultural stories and fables I was told by my parents and family members, like La Llorona, the Weeping Woman. I created this book to show the depiction of women in Latin American "fábulas" (fables) after researching other stories in Latin America and noticing a consistent similarity among the portrayal of women. Hence this book along with the supplementary pamphlet stories shows the cultural background of which women to avoid, what makes a good woman, and what makes a bad woman.
