Chato and the Party Animals by Soto Gary

Book Description

Chato-the coolest cat in the "barrio"-loves to party. So when he learns that Novio Boy has never had a birthday party, Chato decides to throw him a surprise "pachanga." He gets right to work-inviting everyone in the neighborhood, cooking up a feast, arranging for music and a pinata, and even ordering a special cake. Chato's sure that he's thought of everything. But when it comes time for the party, he realizes that he forgot the most important thing of all-Novio Boy! With a lively text featuring Spanish words throughout, and bright, bold artwork, this sequel to "Chato's Kitchen" is truly a cause for celebration"
