About this title

Synopsis:

Martina the beautiful cockroach doesn t know coffee beans about love and marriage. That s where her Cuban family comes in. While some of the Cucarachas offer her gifts to make her more attractive, only Abuela, her grandmother, gives her something really useful: un consejo increíble, some shocking advice.

You want me to do what? Martina gasps.

At first, Martina is skeptical of her Abuela s unorthodox suggestion, but when suitor after suitor fails the Coffee Test, she wonders if a little green cockroach can ever find true love. Soon, only the gardener Pérez, a tiny brown mouse, is left. But what will happen when Martina offers him café cubano?

After reading this sweet and witty retelling of the Cuban folktale, you ll never look at a cockroach the same way again.

From the Back Cover:

(not printed in catalog) Both birders and bird watchers will soar in laughter as they study the fabulous species catalogued in this field guide. As with any quality field guide, this volume is replete with excellent illustrations, detailed descriptions, observation hints and range maps, but you will never look at our feathered friends in quite the same way after you encounter these "freakquent" fliers. While there are many excellent field guides on the market, none include these species. Only the Sill's guide hovers over the forefront of ornithological discovery. It identifies thirty new species, each illustrated in detail with brilliant watercolors by noted nature artist John Sill.
