it was amazing
bookshelves: 2013-bookgroup, picture-books
Recommended for: k-2nd grade

Love the art! Love the story, the humor, the creatures which Nino wrestles, the ending, the endpapers. Fun and funny. I also appreciate the note about lucha libre, of which I've heard but don't know much about it. Don't just share with kids who know about lucha libre. The imagination and actions of the boy battling monsters while stripped down to his underwear and wearing a mask are universal. And those who remember the old Batman TV show will enjoy the bloops, zoks, pachatas, zzzwap, cuchi-coos.
