BAJITO Y SUAVECITOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

This was even better than the first--there was more to the plot--and oh my god. I really just need to cover my apartment in wall-to-wall Raul the Third's work. ( )

This book is a great read for English language learners because it includes puns and many spanglish vocabulary words. Lowriders in Space includes the characters Lupe Impala, Elirio Malaria, and El Chavo Flapjack Octopus. They head underground in search of their lost cat Genie. Along the way they they fight manu different types of creatires and people to try and get to the center of the planet. They work together to survive so they can win a competition. This book is great for kids with imaginitive minds wanting to learn a little bit of Latino culture. ( )

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.

This second book (Earth) takes them deep inside the earth on a hunt for their missing cat, where they encounter Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the underworld.

This book reminds me a lot of Joanna Cole's Magic School Bus: Inside the Earth. Both series manage to work in a little science along with the fantasy story. This Lowriders book has a glossary at the end with definitions of Spanish and science terms, as well as explanatory notes about Aztec and other cultural references. 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 art that sometimes looks like Krazy Kat or Mad Magazine). In this book, Flappy describes igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks as "big dumb ignoramous rocks," "sedentary rocks....like napping at the beach," and "metaphoric rocks-these are the building blocks of poets everywhere!"

Spanish phrases, meticulous illustrations, science, Aztec Gods, Mexican culture, and an action-packed plot! This book has it all. Lowriders to the Center of the Earth is the sequel to Lowriders in Space which is also an action-packed, amazingly illustrated novel by Cathy Camper. This is a perfect addition to a classroom library, regardless of content area, because any student would enjoy this novel. ( )
