“Stop jumping on the bed!” says Nikko’s mama. But Nikko must fight off the masked luchadores that are making so much noise in his room! Count the wrestling luchadores, wearing colorful masks, dressed up as animals, as they turn Nikko’s bed into a wrestling ring. Before he sleeps, the Great and Mighty Nikko must battle before bed!
Kirkus Reviews
"Between Nikko's narrative dialogue bubbles and electric-starburst interjections from Mom, this fun, fully bilingual counting book is just the thing to settle down unruly luchadores everywhere. … The individual masks and costumes of the luchadores are wonderfully detailed, from the jaguar's spotted cape to Mighty Nikko's belted singlet. … This rambunctious addition to the world of bedtime and early concept books stands out."

Midwest Book Review
"The Great and Mighty Nikko!" is a fabulous big screen comic book counting escapade, with Nikko wrestling with his many masked wrestlers (toy) on his bed (instead of going to sleep). Hispanic boys who are learning to count, read, and draw will adore "The Great and Mighty Nikko!"
