Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3–“Zoom! Zoom! Zapato!” Freddie Ramos is back. This short and sweet chapter book sees the curious and kindhearted Freddie asking part inventor, part maintenance man Mr. Vaslov if he can make an on-off switch for his super speedy purple zapatos. Mr. Vaslov tells Freddie he will work on it. All of a sudden, though, the man is missing, and then he mysteriously calls Freddie, only to hang up. Freddie zooms into action, and a technical error on the inventor's part, along with Freddie's need to help, ends up saving the day. Benítez's line illustrations are a delight; even in black and white, they jump off the page, and children will appreciate the characters' great facial expressions. The use of varying fonts and sizes adds emphasis and is likely to appeal to even the most unkeen readers. The book is peppered with Spanish words and phrases. Engaging and fast-paced, this title will bait many young imaginations, particularly among the Flat Stanley crowd.Alison Donnelly, Collinsville Memorial Public Library, IL

Review

"[T]here's plenty of action as Freddie twice rescues his neighbor's ball, makes excuses to avoid running so his shoes won't smoke and gets stuck in a tree before performing a heroic rescue. Freddie's Hispanic heritage shows in descriptions of food and references to his deceased abuela, both worked in naturally....Boys who are able early readers will particularly appreciate this series; a third title is already on the way." Kirkus Reviews
"Engaging and fast-paced, this title will bait many young imaginations, particularly among the Flat Stanley crowd." School Library Journal

My son is 4 years older and enjoys listening to chapter books. It can be challenging to find good books that are family friendly and well written. This is a fabulous book. The story is cute, and he loved hearing it. I also enjoyed that there were a few Spanish words in the book. I highly recommend this book.

Thanks to Zapato Power, my 8 yr. old son became interested in reading again. Although he is a good reader, for a while now, he hadn't been interested in reading. I purchased the first Zapato Power book at his school book fair and he was immediately interested in reading it. Within a few days, he finished the book and loved it. This is the second Zapato Power book which was given to him for Xmas. Needless to say, he was very excited and is reading it for his very first book report. I look forward to purchasing the third book, which I hear is due out this March. I highly recommend this series of books.
