From the 2015 winner of the ALA William C. Morris Award comes a humorous chapter book series about a not-so-attractive cat and his well-dressed mouse friend.Ugly Cat is dying for a paleta, or ice pop, and his friend Pablo is determined to help him get one by scaring a little girl who is enjoying a coconut paleta in the park. Things go horribly wrong when, instead of being scared, the little girl picks Pablo up and declares that he would make a great snack for her pet snake. Oh and there's also the small problem that Ugly Cat may have inadvertently swallowed Pablo in all of the commotion! Ugly Cat and his impeccably dressed mouse friend, Pablo, are an unlikely and dynamic duo who will win young readers over with their ridiculously silly antics and their search for tasty treats.

Booklist Review: "Ugly Cat and Pablo are a cat-and-mouse team of best friends, and when they decide to go to the park one day, they hit the jackpot: a girl is buying their favorite foods, chicharrónes and a paleta. When their plan to make the girl drop her food goes wrong, Pablo finds himself in the girl's clutches, and she plans to make him lunch for her snake! With the help of their neighbor dog Big Mike, Ugly Cat manages to get the girl to drop Pablo, but further mishaps follow. Comical illustrations accompany the text and do a good job of showing Ugly Cat and Pablo's predicaments. The author successfully includes the serious and important topic of how to properly treat a friend, through Ugly Cat and Pablo's interactions with each other and with Big Mike. Spanish words are included on every page and reflected in street and neighborhood names. Short chapters and the bold, unique text, especially when expressing dialogue, will be sure to keep the attention of young readers.--Paz, Selenia Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a banter-filled odd-couple story, a mouse named Pablo and his feline friend Ugly Cat roam their neighborhood making trouble and eating street cart food (paletas are a particular favorite). Quintero (Gabi, a Girl in Pieces) also shows the pals' softer side: they regret riding their English bulldog friend Big Mike around like a bull, and they get a chance to apologize when Big Mike rescues them during an attempted paleta theft gone awry. The friends' keyed-up conversations, which intermingle English and Spanish, can ramble, but Ugly Cat and Pablo have abundant chemistry and personality, qualities that are further accentuated by Knight's bold b&w cartooning.
