Plenty of Pete! Pete The Cat--5-Minute Pete the Cat Stories by James Dean

If one Pete the Cat story is good, plenty is better. The more the merrier!

And there are twelve adventures of Pete the Cat and company in James Dean's just published Pete the Cat: 5-Minute Pete the Cat Stories: Includes 12 Groovy Stories! (HarperCollins, 2017), a collection of quick-reading tales of that other famed storybook cat, the groovy cat in the headband.

Author-illustrator James Dean's bright and simple faux naif illustrations transfer well to the large-page format of this book, which lies open easily on a lap for reading by parent or beginning reader.

These stories include some favorite and familiar ones from Dean's earlier I-Can-Read books--such as "Scuba Cat," "Pete The Cat at the Beach," and "Valentine's Day Is Cool"--perfect for emergent and beginning independent readers and for quicky reads for bedtime. Pete The Cat's motto is an upbeat look at life, "It's all GOOD!" And this one is a good choice for home libraries as well as for school and public libraries.
