    I was interested in this book as a read aloud to my class. I like the integration of Spanish in the English. The illustrations are interesting and my students would think it was hilarious that Nino is in his underpants. However, the story makes no sense. Nino wrestles bizarre characters (which is fine) but when faced with a new opponent, the author lists three random sound effects ("whunk, bloop, krunch") and the opponent is defeated with no real understanding of why. For example, he fights a Cabeza Olmeca and defeats him by putting puzzle pieces on his head. The text: "Nino makes his Puzzle Muzzle move and Olmec Head's mind is blown! It is a real skull-cracker!" What? He beats an extraterrestrial opponent by apparently playing marbles (not wrestling). I do not understand this story and won't be reading it to my class.

    Nino the child wrestler easily defeats famous Mexican monsters and ghosts, but can he handle his own sisters? A fun look at lucha libre with a good amount of Spanish text and dialogue.

    Nino Wrestles the World is a fun picture book about luchadores. Nino goes around wrestling different fictional characters, all of which have unique signature moves. Nino, however, has tricks of his own up his sleeve! He eventually goes on to fight his own twin baby sisters, and then they go to team up against all the luchadores of the world. It would be good to have in a classroom library to read because it's a simple, entertaining book with some cool facts about luchador culture.

    Niño must face many contenders in his wrestling matches. He defeats them all but can't defeat his little sisters. He must join them instead.

    There are many different reasons that I enjoyed reading this book. One reason is that the text showed up differently throughout the story, when an opponent was announced the text changed their name to a different font as well as a different color. Another reason I enjoyed this story was that vivid colors that showed up throughout the story, they were bright and captivated the audience as they read the book. I enjoyed that the book was written in book English as well as Spanish which gives more reader a chance to read the book and learn a different language. Overall I enjoyed the book and I would recommend it to students in second or third grade and even maybe more boys then girls.

    A super fun story about a boy who is a traditional Mexican luchador fighting out of this world and traditional Mexican foes, like a giant Olmec head, the Weeping Woman (La LLorona), and the Guanajuato Mummy. Delightful onomatopoeia and lucha libre-style poster fonts help make the story pop. Finally Niño meets his match: Las Hermanitas (the little sisters). What will he do?

    This book showcases the imagination of children while exposing children to a different culture. I personally really enjoyed reading about Niño fighting the monsters i spent my childhood hearing about. However i think the author could have left out the last monster " el chamuco". While the book targets a very young audience anything from toddlers to 1st grade, this particular character would put me off from showing children this book, Not only is it's pictorial representation prone to give very little children nightmares. The character also crosses the religion line because it is a biblical character after all. Also unless you already know about the monsters in the book a reader could become lost and not enjoy the book at all because they don't understand. The author provides little background. The book is a picture book. The Genre is realistic fiction ( it is implied the child is just imagining all of his game while in his room). The book is a picture book that could be enjoyed by toddlers and preschoolers. however exercise caution because of the content.

    I can picture the delight of Latino listeners with this tale about Nino, the world champion lucha libre competitor. (Okay, so he's a little boy clad in underwear). So what, you ask is Lucha Libre"? Morales describes in an afterward that it is a "theatrical, action-packed style of professional wrestling." Popular in Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries, the wrestlers or luchadores wear masks and perform feats to vanquish their enemies. With a kind of telegraphic text, lots of onomatopoeia, and Spanish phrases, this is the perfect choice for a dramatic read aloud. Once Nino's sisters awake from their nap, how does he deal with them: "They stop at nothing." The stated theme of if-you-can't-beat-them-join-them is the perfect ending.

    Nino was the best wrestler. Monsters would come to challenge him from all over. The monsters that came were the Guanajuato mummy, Olmec head, La Llorona, and so many other monsters and he defeated them all. But the time came when his biggest opponents woke up it was Las Hermanitas. They were defeating him so instead of them winning he joined them and now there unbeatable. This is a great story of a little boy using his imagination and acting as if he is a lucha libre wrestler.

    Hilarious book about a little boys imagination in the life of a Luchadore. Like most little Mexican boys, many are fascinated about wrestling, (Lucha Libre) Nino Wrestles the World is about a little boy who likes to pretend that he is a Wrestler. (luchadore). He pretends that he is so powerful that no one can defeat him, not even the mummies of Guanajuato (Los momias de Guanajuato.)

    Niño Wrestles the World by Yuyi Morales is about a young boy who is obsessed with lucha libre. He also has an active imagination, picturing opponent after opponent waiting for him to do his moves on.Niño puts on his masks and takes on all sorts of monsters from Mexican folklore: La momia de Guanajuato, La llorona, cabeza Olmeca, and El extraterrestre, among others. The illustrations are done in a comic book style, similar to the fight scenes that were done in the 1960s Batman TV show.Though mostly in English, readers will come away learning a few words and some new monsters. My monster obsessed son would have loved this book when he was younger.

    I gave this book 5 stars for the pictures and story line. I would incorporate this book in some sort of grammar lesson. I know my students will love it. I plan to purchase it for my own classroom library.
