Maximilian & the Bingo Rematch is the sequel to Maximilian & the Mystery of the Guardian Angel, an honor book for the Pura Belpre Award. Xavier Garza rules the ring when it comes to writing and illustrating action-packed, high-interest books filled with crazy comic-book art and set in the emotionally charged world of sixth grade.

In Maximilian & the Mystery of the Guardian Angel, Max tumbles over the railing at a lucha match in San Antonio and makes a connection to the world of Mexican wrestling that will ultimately link him to the greatest hero of all time: the Guardian Angel. He also falls in love with the beautiful Cecilia Cant . In Maximilian & the Bingo Rematch, suddenly everybody seems to be fighting: a couple of cranky t as who, like lucha libre rudos, will stop at nothing to triumph in the church's loter a game; his masked uncles going for the tag-team title of the world; and a green-eyed vixen named Paloma who challenges his love for Cecilia. Will good triumph over evil? Max sure hopes so!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Short chapters and the bilingual format (English text is on the left with Spanish translation on facing pages) make this book a quick read, great for reluctant readers. Readers who enjoyed the first title will be pleased to continue reading about Max and his family."--Kirkus Reviews

"This bilingual sequel to Maximilian & the Mystery of the Guardian Angel (Cinco Puntos, 2011) 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."--School Library Journal

"This book is a must for dual language and bilingual classrooms or any classroom where diversity is discussed and respected."--Examiner.com
