A good short story about friendship and sports - basketball. Who shall lose, and who shall win? Sometimes losing is your option, and winning isn't. But how do you win? When you defeat your foes. How do you lose? When your friends lose. But what if, your friends are your foes? Well, that's what you call 'bullshit'.

Humor, the value of friendship, and Mexican culture was all brought to life in this story with superior and vibrant illustrations. I would say the paintings or illustrations in this story was something that really set this book apart and held readers' attention throughout. The main character, Chato, exhibited true qualities of friendship, by learning that his friend, Novio Boy, strongly disliked attending birthday parties because it reminded him that he didn't know his own, nor had he ever had his own birthday party before. In attempt to uplift his friend, Chato decided to host a birthday party for Novio Boy, the very next day. Chato planned all the details that were typical in their birthday parties, including: ordering his favorite mouse cake, inviting all their friends, making traditional Mexican food, putting up a pinata, and setting up birthday games-not to mention that everyone had brought gifts! The only problem was, Novio boy was nowhere to be found on the day of his party and Chato forgot the most important part-to invite Novio Boy! At last, Novio Boy made his appearance after much searching and friends making statements about how much they missed him. Novio boy could not have been more excited or surprised! Novio boy told his scraggly cat friends that he brought with, "These guys are my familia (family)." The resolution to this story is what makes this relatable to children, as it gives hope that even though your family life or past experiences may not be pleasant, there can always be family found in friendship.… (mere)
