Pete the Cat
The First Thanksgiving
A Lift-the-flap Book
Kimberly & James Dean
HarperCollins Children’s Books, 2013
From the back of the book: “Pete the Cat celebrates Thanksgiving in this groovy new lift-the-flap book. With fifteen flaps that open to reveal hidden surprises, this book is sure to be a holiday favorite for every Pete the Cat fan.”
Pete the Cat stars in a school play about the first Thanksgiving – and he does a really great job telling the story. I like the flap features in the book – it gives you twice as much to read and look at on each page. The illustrations are bright and cheerful; the print is medium-large but may prove difficult to read for the earlier readers. I’m not a real fan of Pete the Cat – he’s sort of cute but he’s just not my cup of catnip tea.
