Yuyi Morales has combined the two disparate worlds of children's literature and Lucha libre to create an unforgettable book. Niño is great both as a multicultural read and as just a fun romp.

A very fun, exuberant book about a young boy who imagines himself as a luchador - undefeated, except by Las Hermanitas!

Fwap! Slish! Bloop! Krunch! A young boy imagines himself wrestling and defeating out-of-the-world contenders, but when it comes to las hermanitas he may have finally met his match.

There is something magnificently and universally appealing about Niño. Whether it’s the goofy plot, the eye-popping art, or the fact that there is NOTHING on your bookstore and libraries shelves like this right now, this one-of-a-kind little number is going to lure in boys and girls alike. You’ve never seen anything like it, but after reading it you’ll beg for more of the same.

¡Viva La Lucha Libre!

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Jun 25, 2013

Ladies and gentlemen, Senoras Y Senores, behold Niño, the greatest wrestler of our age. Sure, he may just look like a boy who put on a mask and stripped down to his underwear, but don’t count him out. The biggest baddest contenders fall in his wake. Behold his defeat of the Guanajuato mummy or the terrifying La Llorona. Thrill to the fight between Nino and the Olmec Head or the mysterious Chamuco. Each and every one proves they are no match for Niño’s talents. That is, until his little baby sisters wake up and it becomes clear who really is the champion wrestler in this family.
