Laugh and count along with this lively cumulative romp told in a lyrical blend of Spanish and English by Pura Belpré Honoree Anika Aldamuy Denise and beloved illustrator Zara Gonzalez Hoang!
Nine kittens follow Gato Guapo around, but when it’s time to count them, one by one, they go missing, along with a piece of Gato Guapo’s clothes!
Young readers will love all the silliness that ensues as each naughty gatito dons a disguise and declares “Yo soy Gato Guapo!”.
Gato Guapo’s got a lot of style, and so does the book—the anthropomorphized animals cut winsome poses and will readily endear themselves to readers. Playfully and skillfully balancing two languages, this cat tale proves cute and clever. (Picture book. 4-8) — Kirkus Reviews
