About Lucía the Luchadora and the Million Masks.
Lucía the Luchadora returns in a new adventure!
Lucía’s little sister Gemma wants to be a luchadora like her, but she is more bumble and splat than pizzazz, and seems to find trouble wherever she goes. When Gemma makes a ginormous hole in her big sister’s special silver mask, Lucía is exasperated at how she seems to get away with everything. But a trip to the mercado with Abuela presents the sparring sisters with a dazzling array of possibilities: MORE masks and identities to explore! When Lucía realizes she’s misplaced her special silver mask, a frantic search ensues with Gemma’s help, and Lucía discovers that some things, including troublemaking little sisters, are one of a kind.
A splendiferous follow-up to 2017’s smash hit Lucía the Luchadora, which was named one of the Best Books of the year by NPR, Kirkus Reviews, Chicago Public Library, and more.
About Does Frankenstein Get Hungry?
In this monstrously funny picture book, an inquisitive young girl with some pressing questions proves these creatures may not be so scary after all.
Tucked up in her bed, a little girl wonders about the creatures rumored to go bump in the night. But instead of pulling the covers over her head, she comes up with a list of important questions, like:
Does Frankenstein get hungry?
Does Dracula floss his fangs?
Does the boogeyman have boogers?
Does the thing that lives beneath my bed get lonely under there?
With each inquiry, the little girl’s confidence grows—proving monsters are no match for her imagination! From debut talent John Solimine, this laugh-out-loud picture book has all the silly and gentle reassurance kids need for a good night’s sleep.
