9781452121550: Low Riders in Space (Book 1)

Lupe Impala, El Chavo Flapjack, and Elirio Malaria love working with cars. You name it, they can fix it. But the team's favorite cars of all are lowriders—cars that hip and hop, dip and drop, go low and slow, bajito y suavecito. The stars align when a contest for the best car around offers a prize of a trunkful of cash—just what the team needs to open their own shop! ¡Ay chihuahua! What will it take to transform a junker into the best car in the universe? Striking, unparalleled art from debut illustrator Raul the Third recalls ballpoint-pen-and-Sharpie desk-drawn doodles, while the story is sketched with Spanish, inked with science facts, and colored with true friendship. With a glossary at the back to provide definitions for Spanish and science terms, this delightful book will educate and entertain in equal measure.

Review:

"We need Low Riders in Space out there now. It's cool and funny and original. AND it fills a huge need for books about Latino culture."--Jon Scieszka, bestselling author of The Stinky Cheese Man

"A fun and educational (don't tell the kids!) text for young readers."--Sense and Sensibility and Storeies

"This buoyant graphic novel highlights lowrider culture with all the flair the subject deserves."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"This book was created to celebrate the creativity and ingenuity of the lowrider culture."--Library Media Connection

"Thanks to writer Cathy Camper's passion for science, and Raul inventive drawings, this kid's graphic novel about creatures (Lume Impala, El Chavo Flapjack and Elirio Malaria) who pimp their rides will make adults steal the book from children."--Entertainment Weekly, The Must List

"Roars with high-octane energy, in both the artwork and the prose."--Common Sense Media

"Readers will rejoice in their triumph. As a celebration of Latino lowrider culture, too, it's estellar."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Only from the inventive mind of writer Cathy Camper could come such genius: A book for kids that has it all-kooky characters, cool cars and . . . outer space, no less! Not to mention a high-interest graphic-novel form, full of hip and hop, sure to grab the wits of the most reluctant of readers." - Megan McDonald, bestselling author of the Judy Moody and Stink series

"One of the most delightful comics to come out this year."--Brigid Alverson, Good Comic For Kids, a School Library Journal blog

"Lowriders in Space is a beautifully imagined graphic novel that will spark young readers' imaginations while broadening their understanding of language. The art is inspired, the story fantastic, and together they make a truly magical tale."--Mat Johnson, author of Incognegro and Pym
