Nikko loves bedtime. That's because his bed turns into a magical wrestling ring for the masked luchadores that he loves. They bounce up and down like crazy. His mom, of course, doesn't believe Nikko. She accuses him of jumping on his bed. But that's just not true at all. She just can't see what Nikko sees. And to prove his point--zoosh! Here comes luchador numero UNO with a golden mask and a silver cape. Oh, wow. Number TWO wears an orange mask with yellow flames. Another looks like a jaguar and he growls! A rooster! A bull with horns! And a dragon that breathes fire! And so it goes until TEN luchadores are jumping on Nikko's bed. That's when the Great and Mighty Nikko puts on his mask, taking on all ten wrestlers at once and defeating them soundly. Ahh, a fresh victory under his belt, now it's time for Mighty Nikko to catch some zzzzzs!

Artist and storyteller Xavier Garza is celebrated for his lucha libre picture books and chapter books.

MEDIA 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."--Kirkus Reviews

"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!" --Midwest Book Reviews
