On the fifth of May, Mouse wakes to the smell of delicious
foods and follows his nose until he discovers a festive scene: bright flags, children playing, mariachis, and people shouting, Viva Mexico!
After being stalked by a cat and nearly trampled by enthusiastic children, Mouse still ends the day triumphantly, having experienced the fun of Cinco de Mayo. A brief introductory note explains the significance of the holiday, but Cox focuses on the days celebratory activities, illustrated in Ebbelers exuberant pictures.
