This is a great book for intermediate/primary readers. This is a great book to let your students imagine and create new ideas in their head, but it does not have a lot of educational value for students. I would use this when giving students choice reading time so they have a chance to imagine new ideas with endless possibilities and escape from the real world. ( )

Yes, you read that right. In Lowriders in Space, a young mechanic named Lupe Impala, her assistant Flapjack Octopus, and detail artist Elirio Malarita enter a "Universal Car Competition", modify a lowrider with rocket engines, and embark on a tour of the galaxy to collect materials to properly detail the vehicle. It's not exactly the most fact-based journey but it's a heck of a lot of fun! (That is, it's not a fact-based journey about space, but I learned a lot about lowriders and Spanish slang reading it.) And of course they win the competition and ride off low and slow.... ( )

A wonderful graphic novel, beautifully illustrated and with new words in Spanish translated once at the bottom of the page, this is an excellent story about a car taking a trip through outer space, and the friendships that bring it there. ( )

I'm not really into graphic novels, but Lowriders in Space was on the 2016-2017 Texas Bluebonnet Award reading list (it did not win the award, though), and the illustrator (Raul The Third, aka Raúl Gonzalez III, who grew up in El Paso) recently won the 2017 Pura Belpré Illustrator Award for the sequel, Lowriders to the Center of the Earth. This award is "presented annually to a Latino/Latina ... illustrator whose work best portrays, affirms, and celebrates the Latino cultural experience in an outstanding work of literature for children and youth." The illustrations are all done in red, blue, green, and black ballpoint pen ink on light brown paper and are incredibly detailed.

I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that author Cathy Camper is a K-12 outreach librarian with the Multnomah County Library system in the Portland, Oregon area. In an interview, she said, “When I came up with the idea for Lowriders, I had three goals: To publish a book that would connect with English-Spanish speakers...To create a book that would appeal to boys since boys’ literacy rate was dropping...To connect with kids who loved comics and graphic novels.”


The books feature a female impala mechanic named Lupe Impala, a mosquito named Elirio Malaria who paints and details cars with his proboscis (beak), and El Chavo "Flappy" Flapjack, an octopus who cleans and buffs the cars. The character names are clever - Chevy Impalas are popular models for lowriders, malaria is a disease spread by mosquitoes, and there really is a flapjack octopus.

These three work at the Cantinflas used car dealership, but long to have a garage of their own. They use all their extra time and money to build a lowrider to enter into a competition - but some of the parts come from an old airplane factory, and their test ride takes them into outer space.

This book reminds me a lot of Joanna Cole's Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System. Both series manage to work in a little science along with the fantasy story. Lowriders in Space has a glossary at the end with definitions of Spanish and science terms, as well as explanatory notes about lowriders. Spanish terms are also translated within the story with asterisked footnotes.

While aimed at middle-grade kids, even adults who aren't into graphic novels or knowledgeable about Latino or lowrider culture will appreciate some of the humor in the book, such as some of the cultural references like that to Cantinflas, and art that sometimes looks like Krazy Kat or Mad Magazine). The protagonists get rid of a black hole with w(h)ite-out.

Lowriders in space is a fun graphic novel that teaches both some space concepts and spanish concepts. When the characters are saying words in spanish, they always translate the word on the page. The book shows 3 friends who love to work on cars. They find a car to enter into a contest and they build an incredible low rider that takes them to space.
