Judy Moody meets the One Day at a Time remake in this third story in a chapter book series featuring a young Cuban American girl who tries to find adventure based on the classics she read with her beloved abuela—can Dominguita save a quinceañera?

Dom, Pancho, Steph, and their noble steed, Rocco, are ready for their next adventure! When their beloved El Señor Fuentes asks Dom to run a very important errand—to put the order in at the local butcher shop for his daughter, Leni’s, upcoming quinceañera—Dom is happy to help. But when Señor Fuentes discovers the order was never put in—and the food for the party has been sold to someone else—Dom takes a cue from The Three Musketeers to try and figure out what happened.

With the help of Pancho and Steph, Dom discovers the dastardly Bublassi brothers have big plans to sabotage Leni’s party. Keeping in mind the famous motto All for One and One for All, Mundytown’s own Three Musketeers are determined to make sure Leni has a party she’ll remember for all the right reasons!

About the Author

On September 11, 1961, Terry Catasús Jennings landed in the United States after a short flight from Cuba. On September 12th, she was enrolled in seventh grade in an American school. Her family, including her father who had been jailed during the Bay of Pigs invasion, was now in a free country. The only catch for twelve-year-old Terry was that she could count in English and recite the days of the week and the months of the year, but not much more. Often being the only Cuban in her school—even through college—Terry knows what it’s like to be the new kid on the block. She is delighted to have the opportunity, with Definitely Dominguita, to portray a child of immigrants who is normal—no different than her peers—other than she loves the classics (like Jennings did as a child) and thinks Cuban food rules.

Mari Lobo was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. Being the youngest of three siblings and the only artist in a huge extended family lead her to be a very social person. She was always fond of drawing and painting, but her childhood was spent playing in the street and climbing trees more so than staying at home and drawing. By age fifteen she decided to be an artist, and after a quick detour—getting a degree in industrial design and working a couple years in the fashion industry—she moved to California and attended the Academy of Art in San Francisco where she got her master’s in visual development for animation. She now lives in the sunny Bay Area (with her awesome classical musician husband) where she goes to concerts, on hikes, and out to dinner with friends, but mostly sits in front of her computer and draws all day every day. Mari likes to draw for kids because she loved being a child herself.
