Descrizione

The lovable trio from the acclaimed Lowriders in Space are back! Lupe Impala, Elirio Malaria, and El Chavo Octopus are living their dream at last. They're the proud owners of their very own garage. But when their beloved cat Genie goes missing, they need to do everything they can to find him. Little do they know the trail will lead them to the realm of Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the Underworld, who is keeping Genie prisoner! With cool Spanish phrases on every page, a glossary of terms, and an action-packed plot that sneaks in science as well as Aztec lore, Lowriders to the Center of the Earth is a linguistic and visual delight. ¡Que suave!

    In the second episode of the series, Lupe Impala has her own garage and is busy rebuilding cars and vans. However, her cat has disappeared and tracking him leads her and her friend to the Aztec underworld where he is being hostage.We learn more Spanish phrases and enjoy more of the Mexican-style art.

    I received this as an ARC. I had previously read book 1 of the series and found it entertaining and book 2 did not disappoint me. Once again, the Lowriders are faced with a challenge -- retrieve their cat Genie from the Aztec god of the underworld - Mictlanteuchtli . There adventures in the underworld are hilarious and the interspersing of Spanish words is an easy way to pick up common Spanish phrases. Both books would be of interest to the reluctant reader.

    Lupe, Elirio and Flappy go in search of their lost cat Genie and end up touring the center of the earth, meeting along the way Aztec gods and famous characters of Hispanic folklore, such as Chupacabra and La Llorona. There is lucha libre action with the Aztec god of the underworld and a big Dia de los Muertos celebration to finish the story. It feels a bit as if the author crammed in everything culturally Latino she possibly could. But kids may enjoy the action sequences and Hispanic readers will likely appreciate the cultural familiarities.

    Lowriders in Space, Lupe Impala, Elirio Malaria, and El Chavo Flapjack Octopus, head underground in search of their lost cat Genie. Along the way they encounter the denizens of Mexican and Aztec folklore and legend: Huehuecoyotl, La Llorona, a chupacabra, many many calaveras, and, worst of all, Mictlantecuhti, the Aztec god of the underworld, on their way to the center of the planet.Although the Lowriders slogan is bajito y suavecito, low and slow, the action never stops in this fun and informative adventure in Spanglish by Camper and Raúl III. Camper puts painfully bad puns in two languages in Huehuecoyotl’s mouth.. A delightful surprise is a manga influenced kawaii La Llorona. Yes, a manga cute Weeping Woman with kitten ears, she must be seen to be fully appreciated.
