Lowriders in Space by Cathy Camper

Lowriders in Space (Book #1)
Cathy Camper
Illustrated by Raul the Third

Lupe Impala, El Chavo Flapjack, and Elirio Malaria love working with cars. You name it, they can fix it. But the team's favorite cars of all are lowriders—cars that hip and hop, dip and drop, go low and slow, bajito y suavecito. The stars align when a contest for the best car around offers a prize of a trunkful of cash—just what the team needs to open their own shop! ¡Ay chihuahua! What will it take to transform a junker into the best car in the universe?

The story is sketched with Spanish and inked with science facts.

There is a glossary at the back to provide definitions for Spanish and science terms.
