Overview

Over Ohio in Cincinnati the dancing pig s beautiful twin fanjet Sabreliner as he returns from Italy following the final capture of Fred-X, that catnapping meanie owl, Buzzer Louis gets a call from Socks at Cats In Action (C.I.A.) in the basement of the White House. Seems the infamous international terrorist Carlos the puma has escaped from a dreadful prison near the headwaters of the Amazon River, and the Brazilian and Argentinean authorities are looking for Buzzer and Cincinnati to help capture and return him to prison. Four years previously, Buzzer and his dancing pig sidekick had trapped Carlos by staging a wine tasting and tango contest on the twenty-third floor of the downtown Sheraton Hotel in Buenos Aires, and the big cat had been sentenced to a long prison term. But now he is once again suelto on the loose and promising to come to Buenos Aires to get even with Buzzer and Cincinnati.

Capitán Paloma Pérez and her assistant, Teniente Guillermo Chuck Trovarsi, of the PFA Policía Federal de Argentina -- want Buzzer and Cincinnati to come to Buenos Aires to help capture Carlos once again . . . because nobody knows more about the big cat and his terrorist ways.

After a stop at home in the Hill Country of Texas for a planning session and a brief rest, Buzzer and the entire entourage of Cincinnati, Buzz s pretty but impatient sister Dusty Louise and their tiny twin siblings, the hilarious pranksters Luigi Panettone Giaccomazza and Luisa Manicotti Giaccomazza, take off for Buenos Aires with a fuel stop in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

This time they try to capture Carlos with a stupendous, even grandiose plan hatched by none other than the orange tabby twins, little Luigi and Luisa, with the help of un agente secreto from the PFA, the president of Argentina, herself, and an unusual statue of Caperucita Roja, Little Red Riding Hood. There s intrigue on the big river and a virtual sightseeing tour of Buenos Aires, beautiful South American city of eighteen million inhabitants.

Our heroes polish and expand their knowledge of the Spanish language. You will, too, with a vocabulary and pronunciation guide to more than 750 useful, everyday Spanish words and phrases in a story whose plot twists and turns would make Robert Ludlum jealous.
