School Library Journal - 04/01/2021 K-Gr 2—Following their debut in Training Day, wrestling partners El Toro and La Oink Oink are back, and cleaning up has never been so much fun. They won their match the previous evening against Donny Dollars and Bald Aguila at El Coliseo and today, El Toro arrives at the arena to put it in order. When he finds the place in complete disarray, he calls on his tag team friend to help him out. Together they clean up the many messes in record time and have fun along the way. There are two reasons for this: one is sharing the duties and the other is playing music. "Mi mama would always listen to music when she cleaned," says El Toro. Just as they do in the wrestling ring, the duo works together to defeat the disorder. A great new entry in "El Toro and Friends," which pays tribute to Mexican Americans and includes Spanish words along with their translation in an easy reading format. VERDICT The colorful, action-packed cartoon illustrations create a comic book geared toward a young audience who will get a kick out of following the two teammates and their cooperative efforts both inside and outside the wrestling ring.—Maryann H.
