Señoras y Señores, put your hands together for the fantastic, spectacular, one of a kind . . . Niño!
 
Fwap! Slish! Bloop! Krunch! He takes down his competition in a single move!

No opponent is too big a challenge for the cunning skills of Niño—popsicle eater, toy lover, somersault expert, and world champion lucha libre competitor!

Praise for Niño Wrestles the World

Mamiverse.com - Top Latino Children's Books You Should Know

"Sure to be a smash." -- Kirkus Reviews

"In comic-book fashion, the bold portrayal of each match includes dialogue bubbles and sound effects printed in decorative fonts (“whunk,” “bloop,” “krunch”)." -- School Library Journal

"Kids with multicultural classmates will recognize (or learn) Niño’s many Spanish exclamations. A closing note explains the lucha libre culture." -- Booklist
