I just adore how dashing and gentlemanly Luis is, and how gentle and elegant Tabitha is. I was really rooting for those two and their forbidden romance! Luis brings sardines and flowers and does everything he can to woo Tabitha, but she is trapped inside the house, mournfully watching him through the windows. Luis’ cat friends tell him to just accept the situation, but Luis is indefatigable! I loved his energy and determination!
The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and they really enhance the story. The characters have such eloquent body language and facial expressions. I love the cartoony style and the bold lines. The artwork is truly special, and I was drawn in by the deep colors.
I just adored everything about this book! The story, the artwork; it all comes together for a truly unique and exceptional picture book.
