These tales are cute. Lilli Carre's illustrations are really cute. But they rely a little too much on their cuteness. Woodsman Pete is a completely unaware, hairy little guy who's all alone with his bearskin rug and his little shack. Some of the beauty of these stories lies in Pete's tendency to talk to anything that's around - whether it's a bird on a tree outside his window, or his probably fictional dead wife Margaret.

I enjoy these stories - especially the mythical Paul Bunyan tales - but besides their heartwarming nature, there is little they offer. They feel good, but will they stick to the bones? Or in my brain? I don't know. Anyway, Pete's Saturday Night is worth the $7 you'll pay for this little book.
