Overview

Little Rudy can’t imagine anything better than living in the Guatemala City Dump; a rodent’s paradise full of tasty treats, a Barbie mansion with a pool, and his own fire truck. Unfortunately, life isn’t so good for children living nearby in makeshift shacks. For kids like eleven-year-old Lupe, it’s all about survival.

When the young Guatemalan girl rescues Rudy from the dump bully; a tomcat named Jigsaw, Rudy repays her kindness by finding treasures she can sell and trade for food.

Rudy comes up with many clever and comical ways to outwit Jigsaw, who would like nothing better than to turn Rudy into a little mouse pull-a-part.

Surfing, skurfing, and playing in a Calypso-go-go band, are only a few of the highlights on Rudy’s mercy mission beach get-a-way. All is well - until Jigsaw shows up on the scene.

The discovery of a beach treasure could change everything for Lupe’s family. But can Rudy trick Jigsaw into helping him pull off the most important mission of his life?

Based on a true story - kind of.

    Fun animal adventure

    I loved this book--especially the little mouse Rudy. He was funny and cute, and cared about other people.I liked how Rudy and Jigsaw became friends. This is a good chapter book for 3-5th graders.
