Martina the Beautiful Cockroach



Deedy, C.A. (2007). Martina the beautiful cockroach. Atlanta, GA: Peachtree. 

Martina is a beautiful cockroach, and is looking for a suitable husband. Her grandmother instructs her to meet all of her suitors and spill coffee on their shoes upon meeting them to see how they react. The grandmother tells her that depending on how they react they will treat her well or not. Martina meets  multiple suitors who all get angry when she spills the coffee on them, until she meets Perez, a little mouse, who turns the tables on her and spills coffee on her own shoes. 

A trailer for Martina can be found here:
