Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tima Murrell
Pete the Cat is driving a bus for all of the little kittens and one small dog. Following the same rhyming pattern of the popular children’s song, the book takes the reader on a journey through a day of sounds with Pete. The book is written to follow the song, so it is not written in typical narration. Young readers will enjoy the rhyming patterns that can be either read or sung. The illustrator has filled each page with color which helps to bring the story alive. The different fonts make the writing stand out on the brightly colored pages. The simplistic illustrations will appeal to the young reader’s eyes. It could help little singers develop an interest in reading. Young fans of Pete the Cat will love this book and want to add it to their favorites. If children are not familiar with the Pete the cat books yet, they can still enjoy the illustrations and lyrical wording. Reviewer: Tima Murrell AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 8.

K-Gr 1—Cool dude Pete the Cat is now driving a yellow school bus and picking up kitties along his route. After covering the traditional lines about horns that go "beep, beep, beep" and wipers that go "swish, swish, swish," this book offers up a surprise conclusion. Pete picks up one lone dog and a few pages later, the pooch is seen driving the bus, while Pete the Cat croons from the rooftop, "Let's Rock Out!" The colorful yellow and blue artwork rendered in the artist's familiar pen-and-ink and watercolor will remind fans of the other Pete books, with their hero sporting that deadpan stare. If your library doesn't already have too many "Wheels on the Bus" clones, Pete the Cat's version is cool.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
