Kid Cyclone Fights the Devil and Other Stories/Kid Ciclón se enfrenta a el Diablo y otras historias

Cousins Maya and Vincent are thrilled to be ring side at a lucha libre match. Kid Cyclone, the wrestling world’s favorite hero who also happens to be the kids’ beloved uncle, is facing off against a devil-masked opponent, El Diablo. “No masked devil can beat my uncle. Not even the real devil himself,” declares Maya.

But the real devil doesn’t take kindly to such disrespect, and soon Kid Cyclone finds himself fighting the most hellish challenger of all! Popular kids’ book author Xavier Garza returns with another collection of stories featuring spooky characters from Mexican-American folklore.

Secrets of the Terra-Cotta Soldier
In this action-packed adventure and coming-of-age story that finely weaves fact and fiction, thirteen-year-old Ming lives in a small village in Maoist China in the 1970s. His father is convinced that Emperor Qin’s tomb—and the life-size terra-cotta army created to serve and protect the emperor in the afterlife—lies hidden in the hills around them. But if Ming’s father doesn’t prove it soon, the town’s Political Officer will condemn him to the brutal labor camps. Ming comes to see how he can save both the terra-cotta soldiers and his father from the corrupt Political Officer and his Communist cronies.
