Overview

Set in an indigenous Mixtec village in the artist's own Oaxaca, Mexico, the story involves an evil healer, a good healer and his extraordinary feline pets. Though some people fear the cats will eat everything in sight—and maybe even set fire to fields—the animals soon prove their worth and win their way into the villagers' hearts. [Partial description in Spanish: Un curandero regresa del mercado provisto de una camada de gatitos. Pronto los animales se ganan el corazón de todos.]100 Children's Titles for Reading and Sharing—New York Public LibraryArtwork honored by the Society of Illustrators in New YorkPaintings and text displayed in Art Institute of Chicago and over 40 museums nationwideFilm Advisory Board Award for Excellence
