Chato - the coolest cat in the barrio - loves to party. So when he learns that Novio Boy has never had a birthday party, Chato decides to throw him a surprise pachanga. He gets right to work - inviting everyone in the neighborhood, cooking up a feast, arranging for music and a piñata, and even ordering a special cake. Chato's sure that he's thought of everything. But when it comes time for the party, he realizes that he forgot the most important thing of all - Novio Boy!
With a lively text featuring Spanish words throughout, and bright, bold artwork, this sequel to Chato's Kitchen is truly a cause for celebration.
