Welcome to Alberto's restaurant…unless you're a dog, a cat, a bunny, or ANYTHING with fur, feathers, or scales! The entertainment escalates in this nearly wordless picture book as more and more people arrive with a surprising selection of pets.  Alberto turns them all away--only to see the crowd discover a friendlier alternative in the festive street. Will Alberto find a way to win them back?
Charming, classic art, with graphic novel-like panels, make this a fresh and funny story that will amuse even the youngest readers. Included on the Texas 2 x 2 Reading List!

Ashman (Come to the Castle!) lets Sorra do most of the storytelling—the text is all but superfluous—in this fantasy about a cafe owner plagued by his pet-owning customers.
