In Antigua, Guatemala...

 

...on the streets, on the farms, in the market and in many homes live lots of dogs and cats. Some are gray, some brown and still some are white; each living in different areas of the colonial city, such as the market, in the downtown and at Caoba Farms.

The most important of all of the animals in Antigua (even he would say so) is Uno el Gato, a smart and pretty clever cat. Because he is able to escape the house where he lives, Uno acts as a messenger between all of the chuchos in the city. Though they are from different groups from different parts of the city, these chuchos, or street dogs, all rely on each other to stay safe. And, mostly, life is good for them.

 

One day, however, Uno learns that a few of the dogs from Caoba Farms are missing and their chucho friends that live there are very worried. Where are the chuchos disappearing to? Which ones? How? And why? With the information that he learns on the streets, Uno el Gato calls on all of his skills in order to help out his amigos, the chuchos from Caoba Farms.

 

Is Uno really as brilliant as he thinks, or is he just another cute cat who thinks he’s ‘all that’?

    makes me want to be dead

    we are reading this in spanish class, fucking awful. Listening to my spanish (very white) teacher read this makes me want to dig my pencils all the way up my eardrums until I cant hear a thing. When I have to answer questions about these stupid little kids and their soccer obsession that DETErmINE MY GRaDE, I think about dropping out. to all the Spanish teachers out there, making your students read this book should be considered child abuse DO NOT recommend.

    I recommend this product.

    Love this book for my novice learners. The story is compelling - the reader HAS to keep reading because we want to know how the problem is resolved! In addition to engaging topic/action the underlying struggle that a character has in deciding what to do is great for teens to experience. I also love that it features realistic characters that are portrayed with their humanity.

    I recommend this product.

    Easy to understand

    This story was easy to read without being too repetitive. It is written with the novice student in mind. I love that it ties in another Francophone country for us to explore as well as "le foot"!

    I recommend this product.

    Love El Jersey!

    I use El Jersey to enhance our 8th grade "Living on One" thematic unit after students complete a unit on Copa America. The cultural ties to Guatemala and to the Copa are endless. My students really relate to the characters.

    I recommend this product.
