New Tales of Old Palomar returns us to where the first Heartbreak Soup story left off. All three issues will deal with the classic characters of Palomar like Pipo, her sister Carmen, sheriff Chelo, and the gang of boys who help start it all: studious Heraclio, tall and fey Israel, disfigured but good natured Vicente, and always horny Jesus and Satch. In book one, "Children of Palomar," there are mysterious thieves stealing food from wherever they can grab it the quickest, then they're off like lightning. Sheriff Chelo and some citizens do their best to solve this mystery, but nobody seems to be able to catch these bandits in action until Pipo puts her soccer-trained legs to work and goes after them herself. We are reintroduced to the classic style of the Palomar stories where everybody in town helps one another. That is, except for a person or two that decide to ignore that tradition.

Review: New Tales of Old Palomar #1 [Ignatz Series] (New Tales of Old Palomar #1)

User Review  - Neven - Goodreads

Probably more of a 3.5. It's very readable and entertaining, but there's a mad-libs quality to the writing that makes it hard to focus on anything in particular. Cute. Read full review
