About the Book
Mouse wants to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo festival with just one piece of candy from a magnífica piñata, but Cat has plans of his own!

Yum! Yum! A delicious beany, cheesy smell wakes up Mouse. He follows his nose down the street to a Cinco de Mayo festival. There, high in a tree, he spies a magnífica piñata. If only Mouse could get just one piece of candy from it. But danger is everywhere, from the stomping feet of dancers to Cat, who is planning a holiday fiesta of his own with Mouse on the menu.

The Reviews Are In!
"Mouse is ready for another fiesta adventure (One Is a Feast for Mouse). . . . Ebbeler's fesity full-page illustrations of the world from Mouse's perspective expand on Cox's ebullient text and enchanting story line, establishing the adorable Mouse as a character that children, parents, teachers and librarians will want to follow from one celebration to the next."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
