I thought that the book “Nino Wrestles the World” looked fun and different so I chose to read this story. It is a bilingual story about young Nino, who plays pretend as his twin sisters are taking their daily nap. Nino fights such evil characters as El Chamuco (the devil) and La Llorona (famous Mexican ghost). However, his worst opponents wake up from their nap and he fights Las Hermanitas, his sisters!

Nino wrestles the world is a fun book that many children can relate. Nino who wants to be a Mexican wrestler wrestles his sisters the luchadors. Blending English and Spanish words this book is a fun read which children will love.

2014 Pura Belpré Illustrator Medal. Mixed media. An easy, engaging bilingual title for grades pre-K and up. Some of the Spanish words are translated in text, but others are not. Nino's opponents are drawn from Mexican folklore and history, as well as invented monsters. Would be a good text for a study of Mexican culture or Spanish language. Or just as a fun read aloud.

Nino Wrestles the World is a fun picture book about luchadores. Nino goes around wrestling different fictional characters, all of which have unique signature moves. Nino, however, has tricks of his own up his sleeve! He eventually goes on to fight his own twin baby sisters, and then they go to team up against all the luchadores of the world. It would be good to have in a classroom library to read because it's a simple, entertaining book with some cool facts about luchador culture. ( )

Niño Wrestles the World centers around Niño who has not met an opponent he could not beat. Well that was until he faced his sisters. In the end though his sisters and him joined forces to fight any challengers that faced them.

I love Yuyi Morales' illustrations and the story is quite entertaining containing various cultural/textual allusions throughout the book. I like that he teamed up with his sisters at the end. ( )
