Los Gatos Son Spooky

I found the perfect Halloween book for moi on a book display in my Library's Youth Services Department.

Have you spotted it yet?  I'll give you a hint:  Look for my likeness on the cover.

Los gatos is Spanish for boy domestic cats, and Los gatos negros are boy black domestic cats.  It would be Las gatas negras for girl black domestic felines.  At least, that's the way I remember what little Spanish I used to know back in my days (in a previous life) south of the border.  Ask me about that story sometime.

This book mixes Spanish and English words to tell a scary tale that's just perfect for early grade school children but is probably too intense for preschoolers.  I would have included a book trailer, but my library hasn't made one yet!  Somebody needs to fix that.

Since I haven't yet read the book, I can't give you a review.  Here is one by a popular children's author, which you might ask your grown-ups to read and talk with you about.

Learn About El Día de los Muertos and Halloween (and the differences between these holidays and celebrations) by searching our online Evergreen Indiana catalog.  Type-in  those terms (or others you may think of) into the search line and see what you retrieve.  But don't be scared. You can always visit my Library to check-out the books you find, if you have an E.I. library card, like I do.

"Flat" Cauli III (there are many "flat" Caulis--sounds like a James Thurber book) knows how to use the MPL self-checkout computer.  You should try it yourself sometime.
