All Nestor Lopez wants is to live in one place for more than a few months and have dinner with his dad. When he and his mother move to a new town to live with his grandmother after his dad's latest deployment, Nestor plans to lay low. He definitely doesn't want anyone to find out his deepest secret: that he can talk to animals. But when the animals in his new town start disappearing, Nestor's grandmother becomes the prime suspect after she is spotted in the woods where they were last seen. As Nestor investigates the source of the disappearances, he learns that they are being seized by a tule vieja?a witch who can absorb an animal's powers by biting it during a solar eclipse. And the next eclipse is just around the corner... Now it's up to Nestor's extraordinary ability and his new friends to catch the tule vieja??and save a place he might just call home.… (més)

What a great book -- it's original, funny, kinda salty, and has great characters. It's got a little mystery (where are the animals going?) great friends (2!) and enemies (unexpected!), a little magic (talking to animals) and surprises (animal trivia. Also, the animals are kind of jerks, which is funny) and some serious stuff (how to deal with a deployed parent. how to move and move and move again). Fast paced and full of adventure! Love the slightly bilingual nature of the book, and the seamlessness of Nestor's Latinx (Cuban) heritage -- as in, it's all throughout the book but nobody makes a big deal out of it and clearly the town he's moved to in Texas is full of kids from a variety of backgrounds.

Retelling: Nestor Lopez is the son of an Army Sargent serving in Afghanistan. He and his mother are constantly moving, so he has trouble setting down roots. When mystical creatures threaten the animals of his new town, Nestor quickly overcomes his reservations about making friends, reveals a secret special ability, and solves the mystery to save the day.

Thoughts and feelings: The mysterious creatures of the woods had me turning the pages of this fast-moving book, but I did get weary of listening to Nestor's self-pity. I also wish that the book's villains had a little more depth. I loved the sarcastic animals, who often reflected my own attitude towards Nestor, and the quirky Grandmother. I would love to try her pastelles for breakfast or any time.

Nestor has bounced around from base to base as his dad is in the military. This move is different, Nestor and his mom move in with his abuela in his father's childhood home. Nestor, a talented artist, has the ability to communicate with animals. When he is going through the woods near his new school, a place the children are repeated warned to steer clear of after a large number of pets and animals in the town disappear, he finds an injured coyote. Rumors begin to spread that Nestor's abuela is a witch as she frequently is seen going into the woods.
For the first time he makes friends! joins activities! All the while trying to get to the truth of what is really happening in the first place that has felt like home, ever.
A quick read with some Spanish phrases peppered throughout. ( )

What a delightful book! Nestor Lopez is sick of moving every few years, but this time, when his dad is deployed overseas and he and his mom go to live with his grandmother, things feel different. He actually makes friends - other than the animals he can talk to and understand - but things are not what they seem. A mysterious creature that can transform itself into different animals is preying on the small town's animals and his grandmother becomes the prime suspect. In between dealing with the school bully and trying to win the trivia bowl, Nestor must gather his friends, both human and animal, to figure out how to defeat the threat, which turns out to be a tule vieja - the shape-shifting witch.
