First of all thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for the digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. And thank you to the publishers for featuring my review on Netgalley.

This book is a quick and sweet collection of stories about Croquette and Empanada’s life. I loved the “scary bedtime stories” with Empanada stealing all the covers and the stories about their pets.
I think it’s adorable that the these characters are actually a croquette and an empanada Ana Oncina is an amazing illustrator and when I found her account on instagram I was far from disappointed, I probably prefer her usual style over the one she used in this book, but I think this one is adorable!
