Eels, Elsie Spicer: Tales Of Giants From Brazil [illus]. v1. 27 Jan 09
Folktales from Brazil. This book is fully illustrated.
Here's a short excerpt. As you can see, it's about a poor man who decides to put his cat in the microwave. (Wait a minute. I think I'm confusing this book with a recipe book. Hmmm.)
Well, you decide:
Once upon a time there was a man who was very poor. He was so poor that he had to sell one thing after another to get food to keep from starving. After a while there was nothing left except the cat. He was very fond of his cat, and he said, “O, Cat, let come what will, I’ll never part with you. I would rather starve.”
The cat replied, “O good master Domingo, rest in peace. You will never starve as long as you have me. I am going out into the world to make a fortune for us both.”
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.

Sounds a lot like a german fairy tale: "Der gestiefelte Kater"(he-cat with boots or something)
