Original, clever, couched in culture, and beautifully drawn. I found it much too loud and busy for my tastes, but I think there are many who will love it, particularly how it reflects their experiences in a way that few other books do.
A celebration of the artistry, creativity and mechanical expertise found in the low rider culture. Ages 8-12
Fun, adventurous graphic novel with retro styled illustrations in a Mexican American/Outer Space setting. Notes and slang dictionary included. Grades 4-7
There aren’t many books for Latino graphic novel readers. Camper and Raul the Third have created a story that will appeal to car lovers as well as comic book fans. A crazy trio of friends wants to win a carload of money in a lowrider contest. They’re creative and when their car which has been customized with parts from a closed airplane factory shoots into space, they’re in for a whole new dimension for customizing a car. The quirkly characters and the goofy story line will attract young readers.
Terrific graphic novel for the younger set - cars, space, competition and some Latino/a flavor to top it off. This was a big hit in our house!
