This is book number 2 in the Adventures of Mouse series.
Yum! Yum! A delicious smell wakes up Mouse on the fifth of May!
He follows his nose down the street to a Cinco de Mayo festival. High up in a tree he spies a piñata magnifica. If only Mouse could get just one piece of candy from it. But look out! Cat is on the prowl. He is planning a fiesta of his own, and Mouse is on the menu.
Sprinkled with a few words in Spanish, this Cinco de Mayo adventure is a great read-alound for pre-school and kindergartners interested in other cultures or in sharing their own. The art is appealing and kid-friendly and filled with energy.
