This book was okay. Kind of confusing so pay attention to details but quite a good story never the less. follows the adventures of Charlie a middle schooler who has a little problem... When his parents mysteriously disappear he starts sprouting feathers and devils horns! What's going on and what does it have to do with the ancient stories his grandma told him. 12+

Fantastic cover. If I were an author, I'd weep with joy to have it.

Novel's action is breathless, but nonetheless vividly imagined. Characters felt more like props for the action than fully realized personalities. Really disliked the choice to depict Ponce de Leon as a heroic figure. Learned lots about Hispanic & Latinx folklore.

A Great Books for Great Kids pick. Fans of Rick Riordan’s series will love the story of Charlie and the tales his grandmother tells him about supernatural creatures based on Hispanic and Latino folklore. Grades 4-6.

Action-packed adventure with a host of creatures from Hispanic and Latino mythology! An engaging fantasy with themes of friendship and hope. Ages 9-12

An action-packed adventure story inspired by Hispanic folklore, legends, and myths. Definitely for fans of Percy Jackson and anything to do with mythology.
