Reviews

"Garza shines in her children's debut. The text bursts with infectious energy and Lucía's endearing personality. A madcap pace keeps the story moving along with humor, heart, and bravado in equal measures. Likewise, Bermudez's colorful, buoyant illustrations radiate pure joy. Nifty text placement, variations in type color, and use of sound effects add to this delightful package, making it a joy for readers to root for this plucky young girl. A KA-POW kind of wonderful."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A shining debut outing for author and illustrator, this endearing and humorous title is sure to put a bit of KA-POW into storytimes! A must-have."
--School Library Journal (starred review)
