With his signature laugh-out-loud humor, world-famous comedian George Lopez launches a fantastical middle grade series inspired by his own colorful childhood and Latinx folklore.

In this illustrated contemporary fantasy, twelve-year-old Jorge is lonely and resentful after being sent to live with his grandparents. His first day at his new school doesn’t go well after catching the attention of his belligerent principal and the school bullies, so Jorge might be a little desperate for a friend.
But the only kid who shares his interest in junk food and games turns out to be a young chupacabra—a legendary monster whose kind is known for being bloodthirsty livestock killers. The truth is, Carter is anything but savage—he's kind, a good listener, and has great taste in sneakers. Being friends with a mythical creature should be amazing, but when local cattle turn up dead and his principal suspects the truth, Jorge is torn. Should he trust that his friend is innocent and protect him from exposure, or reveal his dangerous existence and change the world forever?


“ChupaCarter is an uproariously good time, full of humor, heart, and unexpected friendships.” 
—Zoraida Córdova, award-winning author of Valentina Salazar Is Not a Monster Hunter

"A narrative punctuated with wisecracks and flavored with Spanish phrases and slang...Frights and fun in equal measure."—Kirkus Reviews

"Gutierrez’s lively b&w illustrations expertly render Jorge and Carter’s occasionally over-the-top, adrenaline-filled adventures. Actor/comedian Lopez and Calejo offer a rollicking tale brimming with Latinx folklore and culture about finding one’s home in the unlikeliest of places that never takes itself too seriously."—Publishers Weekly

"Some good and gross this fantasy-infused tale."—School Library Journal

My Review: 

ChupaCarter is the beginning of the new series by the same name by by authors George Lopez and Ryan Calejo. I thought it was a fun and entertaining book to read. It was funny at times that had me laughing out loud, but was expecting it to be funnier than it was. However, it was a delight to read and enjoyed reading it. 

ChupaCarter is illustrated by the talented artist Santy Gutierrez. Their pictures are a wonderful addition to the story and gives a perfect visual as to what is going on. They were great to bring the tale to life. 

I am giving ChupaCarter four and a half stars. Readers between the ages of eight and twelve years old and enjoys reading fantasy will want to give this one a try. I look forward to the next book from the ChupaCarter series, ChupaCarter and the Haunted Piñata, to see what happens next. 

I received a digital copy of ChupaCarter from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
