Publisher Comments:

A 2014 Caldecott Honor Book
and#160;
In a near wordless masterpiece that could only have been devised by David Wiesner, a cat named Mr. Wuffles doesnand#39;t care about toy mice or toy goldfish. Heandrsquo;s much more interested in playing with a little spaceship full of actual aliensandmdash;but the ship wasnand#39;t designed for this kind of rough treatment. Between motion sickness and damaged equipment, the aliens are in deep trouble.

When the space visitors dodge the cat and take shelter behind the radiator to repair the damage, they make a host of insect friends. The result? A humorous exploration of cooperation between aliens and insects, and of the universal nature of communication involving symbols, andldquo;caveandrdquo; paintings, and gestures of friendship.

Review:

"In his fourth picture book, Pete the Cat loves (and sings about) the buttons on his yellow shirt, but when they pop off one by one, he doesn't freak out: 'Did Pete cry? Goodness, no! Buttons come and buttons go.' In bold, primary colors, the number of buttons remaining on the shirt appears at left, both as a numeral and written out, and the diminishing buttons are represented in basic equations (3-1=2). Even after all his buttons are gone, Pete takes it as a cue to go surfing. Readers who need a reminder not to sweat the small stuff will find a model of unflappability in Pete. Ages 3 — 7."

About the Author

Eric Litwin (aka Mr. Eric) is the New York Times bestselling author of Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. He is a guitar-strumming, song-singing, story-telling, banjo-picking, harmonica-blowing, fun and folksy type of guy. He is a popular performer who has recorded several award-winning children’s music CDs. Eric is also the cofounder of the Learning Groove, a dynamic early-learning music company. Eric is a former classroom teacher, and this story is inspired by all the students who, like Pete the Cat, say “yes” to learning and facing new challenges.
