Aesthetically appealing--simple and stylish-- Pete the Cat is a wonderful story about resilency, something all children really need to learn about. (Adults, too!!) Pete knows how to make lemonade out of lemons. When something goes unexpectedly wrong: "did Pete cry? Goodness, no! He kept walking along and singing his song." Pete knows the art of appreciating what he's got, rather than wanting what he hasn't. He's cool, musical, a great guitar-playing role model who knows how to enjoy life. We love Pete!
