One Day at a Time meets Mindy Kim in this charming new chapter book series about Catalina Castaneda, a Mexican American girl with a magical sewing kit!
Catalina Castaneda is not persnickety, even though that’s what her parents and sister, Coco, like to think. Catalina just likes things the way she likes them—perfect.
That’s why it’s very hard to hide her disappointment when her glamorous Tía Abuela, a famous telenovela actress, gives her an old sewing kit for her eighth birthday. However, Catalina soon discovers the sewing kit isn’t as boring as she thinks—it’s magic, turning ordinary clothing into magical disguises.
Catalina Incognito: The New Friend Fix
Catalina is excited to find out a new student, Esmeralda, has joined her third-grade class at Valle Grande Elementary School.
But despite Catalina’s attempts to introduce herself, Esme won’t talk to anyone but her own cousin, Jazmín. Could Jazmín be keeping Esme from making new friends?
According to Catalina’s frenemy Pablo, it’s just like what happened to the secret princess in the telenovela hit The Hidden Crown! With Tía Abuela’s magical sewing kit, Catalina sets out to create a disguise to unravel the mystery.
Catalina can’t wait for the upcoming school talent show!
Along with some of her classmates, they decide to rock out and form a band for the big day. But Catalina has some…specific ideas on how the band should look and sound. Can Catalina learn to be part of the band, or will she find herself working on a solo act?
Catalina Incognito: Skateboard Star
The Valle Grande Games skateboarding competition is coming up, and the winner gets a brand-new board.
That means, if Coco wins, Catalina might finally get a skateboard of her own—Coco’s old one. The trouble is, normally fearless Coco has lost her skateboarding mojo at the worst possible time. Cat discovers that Coco has outgrown her lucky flannel, and without it, she’s lost her confidence.
This could be Catalina’s big chance. She can enter the competition herself. If she wears the lucky flannel—and uses the magic sewing kit to make some special alterations—the judges might see a skating star and award her the new board. Which sister will come out on top?
