Author Ane Miren de Rotaeche Ugarte paints bright smiles on young readers’ faces as she releases a newly published picture book through Xlibris, A Very Special Tea Party.

In the story, Sally Mouse invites the reader to one party. She lives in a little hole in Lita and Lito’s garden. She loves to get dressed on special days and have tea with her very best friends. She also has to be very careful when she goes out because in the garden lives Lita’s special cats, Fergie and Marsu and Wilbur.

One day, Sally hears Lito and Lita talking about Monica, their granddaughter, who is about to celebrate her third birthday. Sally also wants to celebrate Monica’s birthday and calls on her best mouse friends to dress their finest and have a very special tea party with her. They then brave the garden where the cats walk, and sing Monica a birthday song. Will they be safe from the claws of Fergie the cat?

Brimming with wonderful illustrations from beginning to end, A Very Special Tea Party is written in dedication to the author’s granddaughter who once turned three years old. It can serve as the perfect bonding tool for children and their parents and grandparents. For more information on this book, log on to
