Lucia the Luchadora - Cynthia Leonor Garza, Alyssa Bermudez

Staff Pick

Cynthia Leonor Garza introduces readers to the acrobatic Mexican masked wrestler tradition, lucha libre, in an exciting playground adventure. When some boys tell Lucía that girls can’t be superheroes, she gets “spicy mad.” But her grandmother has a plan, and shares a special box with Lucía—containing Abuela’s childhood mask and cape. And so Lucía the Luchadora (POW!, $16.99) arrives; she “is brave and full of heart, and isn’t afraid to fight for what is right.” Alyssa Bermudez’s opaque watercolors bring the playground kids to kinetic life, as well as the joy of Lucía’s heroics—mask or no mask! Ages 4-7.
