Baking Falls Flat: Pete the Cat and the Groovy Bake Sale by James Dean

The big school Bake Sale is coming up, and Pete the Cat and the rest of the kids have got to come through with the goods! Pete's favorite treats are sweets, but he wants this product to be super cool!

But his chocolate chip cookies are overcooked, more like charcoal chips than chocolate chips.

His not-too-chill ice-cream sundaes turn into gloppy soup. With only a piddling amount of piecrust mix, his pudding pie turns out to be no more than a puny turnover.

Pete the Cat hasn't got much left to work with--a box of pudding mix, a produce box of fresh berries, a dollop of whipped topping, and a few salvaged shards of his cookies.

Can Pete mix up a terrific trifle for the big bake sale? Or will his final effort be a flop?


And Pete's parfait pleases all.


As Pete always says, "It's all good!" and his treats are a sell-out except for one saved for his mom, in James Dean's newest in his beginning reader series, Pete the Cat's Groovy Bake Sale (My First I Can Read) Harper, 2018). Pete the Cat proves that he can persevere through culinary flops, remaining calm and carrying on, in another of Dean's faut naively illustrated My First Readers with more school days fun with Pete and his friends.
