Luchadores beware: Niño’s younger sisters, Las Hermanitas, step into the ring in this wildly rambunctious sequel to Niño Wrestles the World (2014), and as rudas, they don’t play by the rules. Channeling an announcer’s bravado (“¡Madre! Will anyone be spared from their Pampered Plunder?”), Morales show the girls taking down such rivals as El Extraterrestre and El Chamuco with moves like the “Poopy Bomb Blowout” and “Tag Team Teething,” accompanied by sound effects scattered across the pages in explosive, graffiti-like bursts. The energy in Morales’s punchy artwork is dialed up to the max, and the finale demonstrates that a good book can pacify even the most ferocious of opponents. Ages 4–8. Agent: Charlotte Sheedy, Charlottte Sheedy Literary. (Oct.)

PreS-Gr 2—Sibling rivalry just got real. Niño returns for another round in the ring, but this time his opponents are his incredibly rude baby sisters. Readers will delight as the innocuous-looking hermanitas attack with moves like the Poopy Bomb Blowout and cheer for Niño as he and his fellow técnicos counter with a Look-and-Book Diversion. With comic book—style speech bubbles and action, Morales offers an endlessly entertaining and ultimately sweet selection on sibling bonds and the power of storytelling.
