Praise For ¡Vamos! Let’s Go Eat (World of ¡Vamos!)

"The vital images, the dazzling colors and light (shout-out to colorist Elaine Bay), and the devotion to Mexican food and eating make this story utterly distinctive—and delicious." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The busy pages filled with interesting characters and intriguing bilingual signage make readers wish they could jump into the pages and experience the bustling town.... After enjoying the story, readers will keep going back to savor all the minuscule details. A delectable bilingual experience.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"The characters in this diverting adventure are cartoony animals or imaginary creatures, and a straightforward narration is complemented by plenty of comic vignettes.... The busy illustrations are full of context clues and detailed elements.... Vibrant with activity and movement—from a very stretchy cheese to a stack of flying tortillas." — Horn Book (starred review)

"Be prepared to be lost in this book para siempre. Combining two iconic elements of Mexican culture, food trucks and lucha libre, this tale will make readers of all ages hungry for tacos, burritos, and elote (Mexican street corn)—and for more stories set in the inviting, busy town."  — School Library Journal (starred review)

 "Little Lobo is back for another fun-filled Spanish-learning adventure.... This is a great way to learn about many different sorts of Mexican foods, as well as some Spanish along the way." — Booklist
