Synopsis

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 pinata, 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
