About the Author:

Born and raised in Mexico, Yuyi Morales has been a radio producer and children's book creator since coming to the United States. Her books which have won numerous awards and honors include Little Night and its Spanish edition, Nochecita, a 2008 ALA Notable Children's Book, and Just in Case: A Trickster Tale and the Spanish Alphabet Book, both published by Roaring Brook Press. Ms. Morales lives in Northern California.

From Booklist:

Senoritas y señors! In this corner of the playroom, we have an energetic little boy whose traditional, outlandish Mexican luchadore wrestling costume consists of a pair of underwear and a bright red lucha libre mask. And in the opposite corner, an assortment of “out-of-this-world contenders” ready to take our brave Niño down. Introduced via fact boxes on the endpapers, the villains are an intimidating bunch, but Niño prevails over each thanks to one of his signature moves: the Guanajuato Mummy (the Tickle Tackle!), Olmec Head (the Puzzle Muzzle!), the Weeping Woman (the Doll Decoy!), and so forth. Each single-spread bout is announced by a title card in Spanish and features a plethora of nonsensical action words to go along with Niño’s attacks: zok, slish, bloop, spak, and so on. Morales’ illustrations have just enough competing font styles and explosive-looking backgrounds to conjure the feel of an authentic lucha libre poster, and kids with multicultural classmates will recognize (or learn) Niño’s many Spanish exclamations. A closing note explains the lucha libre culture. Zzzwap! Preschool-Grade 1. --Daniel Kraus
