Praise

“Seasoning the narrator’s account with Spanish words, including flavorful Chicano slang, Lopez and Calejo alternate chuckles and chills as the young detectives struggle with their fears… A fresh, lively escapade with lots of übercreepy bits. ¡Órale!”
Kirkus Reviews

“Lopez and Calejo have created another exciting adventure for young readers that is sprinkled with Spanish words and phrases. The humor in the story is elevated by Gutiérrez’s artwork. A great reminder that you can count on your friends to help save the day.”
Booklist

Praise for ChupaCarter:


“Chupacarter is an uproariously good time, full of humor, heart, and unexpected friendships.” 
—Zoraida Córdova, award-winning author of Valentina Salazar Is Not a Monster Hunter

“Fast-paced and funny, with lively illustrations.”
The Washington Post

“A narrative punctuated with wisecracks and flavored with Spanish phrases and slang…Frights and fun in equal measure.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Gutierrez’s lively b&w illustrations expertly render Jorge and Carter’s occasionally over-the-top, adrenaline-filled adventures. Actor/comedian Lopez and Calejo offer a rollicking tale brimming with Latinx folklore and culture about finding one’s home in the unlikeliest of places that never takes itself too seriously.”
Publishers Weekly

“Some good and gross humor…in this fantasy-infused tale.”
School Library Journal
