Gary Soto introduces Chato, the coolest, low-riding cat this side of East LA. Chato and his best buddy Novio Boy are cooking up a feast to serve with their new neighbors, a family of five plump mice--who have no idea they are to be the main course at their own housewarming party. Luckily, the mice are bringing their own guest to the party. Full-color illustrations.
To get the "ratoncitos," little mice, who have moved into the barrio to come to his house, Chato the cat prepares all kinds of good food: fajitas, frijoles, salsa, enchiladas, and more.
