AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'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)
