A child's imagination inflates school fears in Mexico-based author Núñez's first English-language book...In sophisticated pen-and-ink and photographic collages, Brazilian illustrator Brasil renders the teacher as a hydra and the school bus as a horned monster, and sharp-featured students wear expressions of wide-mouthed terror...Núñez is effective at conveying the sense of doom that ruminating on the unknown can bring, while Brasil's art blends creaturely details and photographic accents to stylized effect.-- "PW" (6/4/2018 12:00:00 AM)
A boy walks readers through his concerns about his first day of school: "Now I'm in the belly / of this monstrous bus. / The driver's a zombie / who won't talk to us." The story follows the expected school-isn't-so-bad path, and the rhymes (translated from the Spanish) drop the odd beat, but elevating the affair is the surrealism-tinged art reflecting the kid's imagination.--Nell Beram "The Horn Book Guide" (8/12/2019 12:00:00 AM)
