Praise For Nino Wrestles the World

"Sure to be a smash." -- Kirkus Reviews

"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
