Review: A series of earthquakes alerts new garage owners Lupe, Elirio, and Flapjack that their cat, Genie, has gone missing. This trio, comprised of an impala, a mosquito, and an octopus, set out in search of their pet and find themselves traveling in their lowrider to take on the Aztec god of the underworld. While content may be a bit graphic for younger readers, the high-octane storytelling and exuberant illustrations combine with Spanish words and phrases interjected throughout to make one crackerjack graphic novel sure to hook many a reader.
