School Library Journal - Red Velvet Cape
Readers will feel Mateo’s excitement as well as his disappointment when he thinks he’s not going to get what he imagined. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations are lively and cartoonish and the inclusion of a gender-neutral restroom and school posters in both English and Spanish are a nice touch. Directions for making a red velvet cape are appended. VERDICT Purchase where preschool books about being superheroes are in demand. Yep, everywhere.
