SOCCER MOM, #120 SOCCER MOM, #120
When Maya and Miguel’s soccer coach leaves to become a professional player, the gang is left without a coach. A frantic search for a new coach is unsuccessful. Finally, Maya notices that her mom is a fairly adept player… perhaps she should be the new coach! Rosa is talked into the idea. Rosa turns out to be an excellent coach, and all the kids love her… except Maya and Miguel don’t like the two parts of their lives crossing over like this. Rosa keeps telling stories about them and calling them cute names that are embarrassing! They ask Rosa to step down as coach, which she agrees to do. But when they realize that they don’t play as well without her, Maya and Miguel beg her to come back and help them before a big game. Rosa declines. During the game, Maya and Miguel’s team is losing badly… so the new coach turns to Rosa for a little inspiration. Rosa gives the team a pep talk and some coaching from the sidelines… and the gang wins! In the end, Maya and Miguel learn to be proud of their mom… and to occasionally let her embarrass them.
Vocabulary words: soccer ball, coach, sneaker
THE ADVENTURES OF RABBIT-BIRD MAN, #121 THE ADVENTURES OF RABBIT-BIRD MAN, #121
Miguel enters a comic book contest. Before he can finish his original comic book loosely based on Aztec mythology entitled, "The Adventures of Rabbit-Bird Man," Miguel comes down with a bad cold. Miguel has left the hero in grave jeopardy, and he implores Maya to finish the comic book and save him. Maya rounds up the gang to help her think of a way to save the hero from the bad guy. In a series of vignettes, we see each kid’s proposed ending: Tito imagines a heroic soccer player (who looks just like him) saving the day, Theo pitches a robot boy (who looks just like him) saving the day, and Maggie and Chrissy imagine a fantastic singing duo (who look just like them) saving the day. With the clock ticking and no clear ending, Maya decides that they should combine all of their endings together, and make one grand finale. In the end, Maya’s cooperative ending nets Miguel a prize for"Most Creative."
Vocabulary words: robot, sick, trophy
MAYA AND MIGUEL, COME ON DOWN!, #122 MAYA AND MIGUEL, COME ON DOWN!, #122
Maya and Miguel seem to have an aptitude for their favorite TV game show. But when they decide to audition, they discover that they have very different approaches to training. As they move from one stage to the next — preparing for the audition, passing the trial, training for the show — their own rivalry grows more intense, and they lose the knack of working together. Only when they are on live TV, confronted by an unscrupulous contestant who will do anything to win, are they able to put aside their little differences and work together as sister and brother.

The three of them, along with Abuela Elena's help, try to uncover Sr. Lopez' secret past... but even putting him face-to-face with the masked wrestler’s arch-nemesis doesn't manage to reveal him. Finally, when an old piece of baking equipment goes on the fritz, Sr. Lopez must fight the mechanical beast using "El Guamazo Lopez’" signature wrestling move. Tito is vindicated! Sr. Lopez finally admits to having been the famous wrestler in the past. But it's more important for him to be known as a good baker from now on. His secret is safe with them!
