Pepe the parrot was beak over claws in love . . . with a cat! Until . . . ​​​​​​​ With a gobble and slurp, Carina swallowed that parrot whole! In fact — she ate everyone in her path: A florista and her flowers, the carretaro and his ox, a chivo and his boy — and more! Who will be able to stop this greedy cat? ​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​In this wickedly funny, classic folktale infused with vivid color and Cuban spice, Carmen Agra Deedy and Henry Cole have merged their talents to create an inspiring and satisfying picture book that proves it’s the smallest of creatures who sometimes possess the most surprising strength!
