Rudas: Niño’s Horrendous Hermanitas

Yuyi Morales. Roaring Brook/Porter, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-62672-240-8
Luchadores beware: Niño’s younger sisters, Las Hermanitas, step into the ring in this wildly rambunctious sequel to Niño Wrestles the World (2014), and as rudas, they don’t play by the rules. Channeling an announcer’s bravado (“¡Madre! Will anyone be spared from their Pampered Plunder?”), Morales show the girls taking down such rivals as El Extraterrestre and El Chamuco with moves like the “Poopy Bomb Blowout” and “Tag Team Teething,” accompanied by sound effects scattered across the pages in explosive, graffiti-like bursts. The energy in Morales’s punchy artwork is dialed up to the max, and the finale demonstrates that a good book can pacify even the most ferocious of opponents. Ages 4–8. Agent: Charlotte Sheedy, Charlottte Sheedy Literary. (Oct.)
