Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-This retelling of a Cuban folktale moves slowly as a mouse family on a picnic has an encounter with an orange tabby cat. Also, the title reveals the twist at the end, wherein Mam proves herself the more useful parent when she frightens the cat away. The story is preceded by a glossary of 14 Spanish words and phrases. Simple sentences and amusing characterizations may engage some children, but many will be put off by the mouse parents' obsession with "smooching." Aguirre's freshly hued acrylic pictures feature flat cartoon profiles and a variety of composition styles.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    GREAT BOOK!!

    Great bi-lingual story, students love everything about this book, including the 'smooching' part! They loved all the characters and want it read again and again.

    My Boys' Favorite Book

    This book is a big hit at my house. It's probably not the best for bedtime because it has my boys rolling with giggles, especially the smooching part. What can I say--they are 4 and 7! Good story intersperesed with Spanish words, and includes a glossary. A very funny way of driving home the need to know more than one language.
