“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
