TKO! Maximilian Wins Best Youth Fiction
TKO! <i>Maximilian</i> Wins Best Youth Fiction February 28, 2014

Congratulations to author/illustrator Xavier Garza on winning the NACCS-Tejas Youth Fiction Award for his bilingual book Maximilian and the Bingo Rematch. The illustrated middle-reader story follows the misadventures of luchador-obsessed Maximilian as his old aunts battle for the Queen Bingo trophy, while his sweetheart and the “new girl” battle for Max's heart.

Maximilian and the Bingo Rematch is available in paperback and hardcover.

Check out more from Xavier Garza here.

"This bilingual sequel avoids formulaic trappings and can be readily enjoyed as a stand-alone novel while artfully setting up the next installment…Garza employs plenty of humor and a first-person voice that rings true to Maximilian’s character. The story includes enough action to satisfy most fans while broadening its focus to reflect the increasing complexities in the boy’s life…an outstanding choice."
