The trouble started when Pepe the parrot fell in love with . . . a CAT!

Hoping to win her paw, he invited her to his house for dinner. But within moments of arriving — with a gobble and a gulp — Carina swallowed that love-sick parrot whole! And he was just the appetizer! In this Cuban retelling of a classic folktale, Carmen Agra Deedy and Henry Cole merge their talents to create a wickedly funny and inspiring picture book that proves the smallest of creatures can sometimes possess the most surprising strength!
