Praise & Reviews

Junior Library Guild

  • Rey Mysterio, who through dedication, earned the right to use his uncle’s wrestling name and climbed to the top of his sport in two countries (he immigrated from Mexico to the United States), will be an inspirational figure to any reader.
  • Text boxes on each page further explore concepts and people—including Rey’s main allies and rivals, the differences between lucha libre and American wrestling, and key word definitions—introduced in the text.
  • Vibrant artwork mixes full-color photographs with stylized illustrations to communicate the energy and excitement of Rey’s competitive matches.
  • Quotes taken from Rey Mysterio’s autobiography illuminate his love of the sport and the obstacles he’s encountered during his career, from pre-show jitters to painful injuries.
