El gato bandido
dramatizacion de la fabula de Rafael PomboDownloadable Audiobook - 2007 | Spanish
An excited boy comes home to ask his grandfather why his teacher thinks he might end up like "Michin." He has not been very attentive in class lately, he admits. After discretely expressing concern that some youngsters may turn into outlaws because, like Michin, their fathers have abandoned the family, Abuelito explains the story behind the teacher's comment. The slightly enhanced and modernized version of the fable begins with an impolite Michin, roughly translated as "Pussy Cat," refusing to eat a delicious soup his mother has lovingly prepared. After stealing his father's dagger and pistol, the feline sets off for a life of crime. None of his schemes work out, so he partners with a very bad dog. But even during a sting, he has to be reminded that he is in the disco to rob the customers, not to dance a rumba with an attractive feline he spots. The bad behavior comes to an abrupt end and the police eventually take the humbled and very hungry cat home to his mother, where he promises to change his ways.
