'From the creator of Tashi - meet the irrepressible dog Figaro and his cat-friend Rumba, who find themselves in big adventures that are fabulous fun for chapter book readers. With pictures in full-colour by award- winning illustrator Stephen Michael King.
'Come on two fabulous adventures with two best friends.
'When Figaro and Rumba catch the Very Fast Train to the beach, they meet a cunning crocodile with conga drums and a satin waistcoat, but they can't imagine such a musical creature might be a villain with a catnapping plan...
'And when Figaro howls in the Cool Cats' choir, the little ginger cat takes him exploring in the Catmobile. Open-air driving is the best thing ever, but Figaro thinks he's seen a monster in the car...' (Publication summary)
'Figaro and Rumba are old friends. And their new friends are the cats who run the Cool Cats Cafe. Customers come from everywhere to try their chicken empanadas, and to swoon beneath the spell of their singing and steel guitars.
'But the Cool Cats top singer can't rehearse while Figaro is howling out of tune. Anyway, Figaro would rather be exploring than singing, and Dora, the little ginger cat, has the keys to the singer's classic Catmobile! Figaro had thought he'd seen a monster in the car, but when he sniffed inside he could only smell polish, leather and fish... so off they go! Vroom, vroom, vroo-oo- ooom!' (Publisher's blurb)
