About the book
Mamá Gracíela’s TENDER, CRUNCHY, SPICY bacalaítos fritos are the best in town…
Local customers (including stray cats!) come from all over the island to enjoy her secret recipe. But when the Inspector discovers that Mamá secretly caters to so many cats and he threatens to close her tiny restaurant, Mamá must come up with a plan to save it—and all of the animals she loves.
And I thought
A charming little children's book. I received a pdf copy so I can't comment on the print copy.
The illustrations were delightful. I loved all the different cats. All the different cats have different and cute personalities.
Even the dogs that come around in the end are charming.
The pages are colorful.
The story is charming. When Mrs. G. realizes that she can't keep all the cats and her restaurant she has to figure out what to do.
The story has kind of a surprise ending.
I enjoyed this children's book and recommend it to parents.
This is a good book for parents to read to younger children.
I received a complimentary copy.
