Overview

In a dusty mountain village of Oaxaca, the local healer returns from market with a litter of twenty-five kittens. The unfamiliar animals are not a welcome arrival. Misconceptions about cats abound, and some people go to great lengths to make the good healer get rid of them. But when an evil spell threatens a member of the community, the Mixtec cats prove their worth and win their way into the villagers' hearts.100 Children's Titles for Reading and Sharing—New York Public LibraryArtwork honored by the Society of Illustrators in New YorkFilm Advisory Board Award for ExcellencePaintings and text displayed in Art Institute of Chicago and over 40 museums nationwide
