Pete the Cat is the groovy cat kids love. This series of books is always fun for kids (and parents) to read. The latest releases by James Dean include Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes and Pete the Cat My First I Can Draw Book. One is a big picture book full of bright illustrations and a story of cupcakes that keep disappearing. The other is a thick book full of instructions on how to draw Pete as well as other characters and items from the world of Pete the Cat. You draw right on the pages in the book. First on the grids to learn and then right in the pictures.
Join Pete the Cat in a brand-new story and help him and his friends find the missing cupcakes! Pete the Cat and his friends are busy as can be baking cupcakes for a cupcake party, and Pete can’t wait to perform with his groovy band. But some of the cupcakes have gone missing. Who could have taken them? In this latest Pete the Cat picture book adventure, by New York Times bestselling authors James and Kimberly Dean, Pete and the gang solve the mystery of the missing cupcakes and learn that it’s cool to be kind.
Kids will enjoy following the easy step-by-step diagrams to re-create Pete and their favorite stories. The diagrams become appropriately a little more challenging as the pages go on. This 160-page activity book is packed with everything from the world of Pete the Cat that aspiring artists will want to draw, from Pete, his rockin’ band of friends, dinosaurs, trains, surfboards, and even Pete’s famous shoes!
Both Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes & My First I Can Draw Book and Pete the Cat My First I Can Draw books are fabulous for old and new fans of Pete. With the holidays approaching these would make most excellent gifts. This is a book series that little ones ages 4 to 8 won’t want to miss!
