Martina the beautiful cockroach doesnt know coffee beans about love and marriage. Thats where her Cuban family comes in. While some of the Cucarachas offer her gifts to make her more attractive, only Abuela, her grandmother, gives her something really useful: un consejo increible, some shocking advice. You want me to do what? Martina gasps. At first, Martina is skeptical of her Abuelas unorthodox suggestion, but when suitor after suitor fails The Coffee Test, she wonders if a little green cockroach can ever find true love. Soon, only the gardener Prez, a tiny brown mouse, is left. But what will happen when Martina offers him caf Cubano? After reading this sweet and witty retelling of the Cuban folktale, youll never look at a cockroach the same way again."
