Rudy Herrera is surprised and excited when he  gets an invitation to a pool party. It's from Tiffany  Perez, the richest and most popular girl in  school.

Rudy's grandmother, "El  Shorty," thinks he is going off to shoot pool.  His sister, Estela, warns him not to make a fool  of himself, or worse, embarass her. Rudy's father  teaches him how to make small talk and tells him  Tiffany will like him because he's a real person,  not a phony.

All Rudy cares about  is what to wear, what kinds of dives to do, and  what to bring Tiffany. When the big day arrives, Rudy  is in high spirits. Will he make a big splash at  the pool party?

From Grandfather  "El Shorty" to Little Rudy, the Herreras are a  family who not only live and work together, but  love and enjoy one another. Gary Soto, poet and  storyteller, gives young readers a story of simple  pleasures, simply told and simply wonderful.
