Nobleman (Boys of Steel) introduces a comic triothree goats named Pep, Bumsie and Jaynawho debate the best way to handle the goat-eating chupacabra that lurks atop a nearby hill. Jayna, the bravest, proposes a pre-emptive attack: Theres lots of us and only one of him. Bumsie is anxiety-ridden: W-what does the chupacabra eat for b-breakfast? (Goats, Jayna replies.) And Peps a realist: No veggies? They meet the monster soon enough, and though they succeed in temporarily distracting it with other objects to devour (candelabras! cucarachas!), the moment of truth arrives as the chupacabra reveals its favorite foodwhich does indeed start with goat. References to Latin American food and culture appear throughout (The whole chimichanga, says the chupacabra, and Pep corrects, You mean the whole enchilada ), and debut illustrator Arandas vibrant mixed-media artwork amplifies the books cross-cultural brand of humor; her chupacabra, with its beady nose, spiky purple ears, and lovely flowered hide, wouldnt threaten a cat (although it throws a scary shadow). Readers will be sorry when this one is over. Ages 58. Illustrators agent: Adriana Domínguez, Full Circle Literary. (Mar.)
