Synopsis

Lowriders to the Center of the Earth by Cathy Camper

The Lowriders are back! Lupe Impala, Elirio Malaria and El Chavo Octopus are living their dream at last--they are the proud owners of their very own garage. Then an unexpected series of earthquakes hits their town, and their beloved cat Genie goes missing. Our heroes hit the road in search of him, only to discover that the trail leads to a confusing cornfield. All is not what it seems, as the cornfield leads to the realm of Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the Underworld, who is keeping Genie prisoner! It will take all of Lupe's, Elirio's, and El Chavo's courage and smarts to outwit old Mic. But our heroes are brave. They are willing to go all the way to the Centre of the Earth to rescue Genie--and in this book, that's just what they do! Another inventive, visually amazing adventure from the duo that created LOWRIDERS IN SPACE.
