In this hilarious follow-up to ChupaCarter, world-famous entertainer George Lopez delivers a spooky tale of mystery, revenge, and friendship starring 12-year-old Jorge and Carter, the fearsome but friendly Chupacabra!

Inspired by his own childhood and packed with clever illustrations, George Lopez's sequel to ChupaCarter sees Jorge finally feeling at home in his new town, thanks to his awesome friends Liza and Ernie—and especially Carter, the chupacabra.

New kid Jorge is shocked to learn that his beastly friend Carter isn't the only legendary creature in Boca falls. Every few years, the town is terrorized by a haunted . . . piñata? Rumor has it that the petrifying party decoration floats around setting eerie fires to avenge a long-ago betrayal. Jorge can't help but laugh, until a rash of green fires forces the townspeople to consider moving away, including the parents of his pals Ernie and Liza!

With Carter at their side, the three friends are in a race against time to catch the real culprit before they're separated forever . . . or the whole town is set aflame. Which will come first?

Magic, mystery, and danger abound... and yet the scariest thing still proves to be his abuela with a slipper!

Jorge, Liza, and Ernie are back and the case they inexplicably uncover is forty shades of wrong, underhandedness, and dirty deeds. What seems like a curse that awakens every six years to wreak havoc on their small town is SO MUCH MORE than an evil piñata out to take its revenge, and when all is said and done, you may not believe your eyes! Good thing they have a secret weapon. Beyond their bonds of friendship, beyond their dedication to revealing the truth, they have Supercarter! That's right! Their furry, fanged, spiked, blood drinking chupacabra is back, and while still seeking his family, is more than willing to lend a hand to keep these friends and this town together. After all, that's what you do for family, right?

A great story with enough mystery to draw you in, enough heart to earn your own, and enough campy scares to keep you in the edge of your seat, this is definitely a series Middle Grade fans won't want to miss!
