Niño Wrestles the World by Yuyi Morales

Niño dons a wrestling mask (with his tighty whities). “So superb are his talents that out-of this-world-contenders line up to challenge him." Like Niño vs. El Extraterrestre, Niño vs. El Chamuco, and — most challenging — Niño vs. Las Hermanitas (his little sisters)! “Ay, ay, ay, ajúa!” The book is a quick history lesson in luche libre — a theatrical style of professional wrestling involving masks and storytelling. It inspired our kids to make up their own luche libre masks and signature wrestling moves.
