There is a business near my house called Pizza Cat. My child was always yelling Pizza Cat to me, about everything. Then we were out shopping one day and he just started yelling Pizza Cat , Dad, Pizza Cat. I looked where he was pointing and it was a book called Pete the Cat.

As a young father, I have never heard of Pete the Cat. Him going to daycare was clearly exposed to it. Suddenly all those random proclamations about Pizza Cat came more into focus if I heard Pete the Cat instead. "What do you

First sentence: Pete the Cat loves bananas.

Premise/plot: This is a collection of twelve previously published Pete the Cat stories.

It is hard to express how much I loathe this collection, given to my 3-year-old by one of his great-aunts (I very much appreciate the kind thought, just not the book!) The stories are stupid. The language is infantile. The illustrations are dumb. Seriously, I wrote better stories when I was eight. Why would you read Pete The Cat when you could read your child intelligent books like Beatrix Potter stories?! But... every so often my son asks for Pete the Cat, and I groan and facepalm myself for no ...more

This is a collection of 12 Pete the Cat stories. Some (in my opinion) are better than others; but still all are good. Some are just for fun; and others have a lesson to learn. With Pete learning a lesson through the story helping the reader-listener learning the lesson along with Pete. You can't go wrong with this collection book.

Read a couple of these to my kinders for storytime. They love Pete the Cat! Nice and short. some have lessons. Some are better than others, but my kids will tell you that there isn't a bad Pete the cat story.

I only read the first story. I forced myself to finish that one story. I couldn't force myself to finish this. **double face palm** I miss the old Pete the Cat, the one written by Eric Litwin....

Great book that fits the students interests and can be told in a series of books each day

This is collection of Pete the Cat stories that have previously been released as individual books. These stories lack the rhythm of the originals and the words are very repetitive. In a way, this book and the stories are the modern "See Spot Run" learning to read books. Also, the book is rather large, thick, and has a soft cover.
