One tiny mouse follows his nose to a Cinco de Mayo festival, where exciting performances and tasty treats await!
Mouse smells some yummy candy in a piñata hung high up in a tree for the Cinco de Mayo festival. He NEEDS to have one! But first he wants to eat some mouse-meal-sized tamale crumbs and watch heel-stomping dancers in bright-colored dresses. Everything will be perfect so long as he stays away from the cat following him down the street.
Now a board book, Cinco de Mouse-o! is the perfect read-aloud for the little explorers in any family. Illustrator Jeffrey Ebbeler uses bright colors to detail a joyous celebration of Mexican-American culture with music, food, and games.
