Pants: who needs 'em? Certainly not Pete the Elephant. Wait, he's an elephant? He's big. He's round. He's gray. Maybe he's a boulder. Or a rain cloud. Or a giant naked pigeon.
Author/illustrator Rowboat Watkins's muted, sweet drawings and witty banter make for fun bedtime (or any time) reading.
Pete With No Pants is a totally adorable story of identity, self-acceptance...and pants. Recommended By Sandy M., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
Pete is gray. He's round. And he's not wearing any pants.
So Pete must be a boulder. Or is he a pigeon? Or a squirrel? Or a cloud?
Join Pete in his quest to answer the world's oldest question: Why do I have to wear pants? Wait, that's the second oldest. Born from the one-of-a-kind imagination of Rowboat Watkins, this hilarious book (the asides just beg to be read aloud) about finding out who you are features a satisfying and touching ending that will encourage young readers to be true to themselves as it reminds the adults in their lives to support them no matter what.
