Synopsis: 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.
The pictures in this book were really bright and colorful, keeping my two-year old's attention nicely. She LOVED the cats! The story was sweet and made me a bit hungry haha. Some of the words were a little advanced, and I'm not sure young children are going to understand about the health inspector, but those could all be opportunities to learn and discuss things! Older children will probably have no trouble with it at all.
