    "This fun mystery-adventure moves at a nice clip, featuring short chapters filled with trivia, grayscale illustrations, and bolded vocabulary that is defined in a glossary that also gives each word's origin." — Booklist

    "A candy-flavored etymological romp through a kaleidoscope version of Mexico, this latest episode in the series keeps the word-happy spirit of its predecessor and manages to infuse a sunny strand of humor. Cultural exploration and lively artwork continue this series' dedication to knowledge-seeking in the name of fun, with a small diverse cast." —
