Horn Book
This follow-up to Niqo Wrestles the World is brimming with action, humor, and heart. It's ticnicos ("Good guys") vs. rudos ("Tough guys") as Niqo recounts a spirited wrestling rumpus with his misbehaving little sisters. Morales's vibrant collages, filled with textures and zigzags, reflect the children's boisterous fun. Varied typefaces add to the chaos, while speech bubbles feature expressions in both English and Spanish.
Publishers Weekly
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.

School Library Journal Starred Review
PreS-Gr 2 Niño is back in this rollicking adventure, but he takes backseat to the Rudas: his mischievous little sisters. The masked hero's siblings do not play by the rules, and they conquer each of their opponents with incredibly rude feats and moves that young readers will find familiar (and hilarious): the Poopy Bomb Blowout (smelly diapers), Tag Team Teething (painful bites), and Twofer Tattle (the innocent-looking hermanitas tell on their rivals). But Niño has tricks of his own and stuns the Lucha Queens with the art of storytelling. Morales's art amazes, from the endpapers to the glossary; her collage-style composition, vivid palette, and childlike, crayon-filled illustrations are just as charming as those in Niño Wrestles the World . The comic book-esque speech bubbles, varied fonts, and exaggerated facial expressions add to the work's laugh-out-loud moments. Spanish words and lucha libre lingo are peppered throughout, and their meanings can be easily discerned through the images, context, and the short glossary. Young readers will see themselves in this romp of a tale and will want it read aloud again and again. VERDICT Another winner by Morales, this ode to sibling scuffles and makeups will delight kids of all ages. ¡Vivan las hermanitas! Shelley Diaz , School Library Journal
Starred Review ALA Booklist
*Starred Review* There is only one Niño, the lively little luchador (red-masked wrestler). And in a sequel to Niño Wrestles the World (2013), he is back for another alarming adventure. As the front endpapers explain, the Rudos are the "tough guys" who bend or break the rules, and Technicos are the "good guys" who use good manners and play nice. The bout begins in this corner with the Rudas Hermanitas, Niño's phenomenal, spectacular little sisters, nicknamed the Lucha Queens! They use techniques such as the Poopy Bomb Blowout (picture it) to gas opponents out of this world. Early in the match comes the stunning skateboard Nappy Freedom Break, followed by Tag-Team Teething biting. They tattle, they plunder, they screech and scream ese Rudas know no bounds. But Niño cleverly traps the sisters, ends their dastardly deeds, and calms them with a book. Concluding end papers contain a colorful glossary, which translates some of the Spanish words, and hilarious pictures. With acrylics and inks Morales depicts the spectacular battle between Niño and his two little sisters in brilliantly colored cartoons, as each page blasts our senses with eye-popping bold-font styles and bubble text and backgrounds of explosive stars. Another hit for award winner Morales!
