Pete the Cat Saves Christmas (Pete the Cat)by Eric Litwin and James Dean
Synopses & Reviews
'Twas the day before Christmas and Santa was ill.
In the cold winter wind he had caught a bad chill.
Will Christmas be canceled? Will it come to that?
"Never!" cried Santa.
"Let's call Pete the Cat!"
In this rockin' new spin on the traditional tale The Night Before Christmas, Pete the Cat proves that giving your all in the spirit of Christmas is the totally groovy thing to do.
"When Santa falls ill just before Christmas, who's the first number on his speed dial? Pete the Cat, of course. Standing on his surfboard, staring out with the deadpan expression readers will recognize from his previous books, Pete agrees to make Santa's Christmas Eve deliveries; before long the reindeer are strapped to Pete's red minibus ('Then the minibus flew, just like in a movie./ Pete the Cat cried, 'This is totally groovy!''). Despite Pete's ongoing anxieties about being too small for the job, there aren't any hiccups along the way, making for a gently off-kilter but fairly straightforward story. Ages 4 – 8."
