Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt—the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song—after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons? Count down with Pete in this rocking new story from the creators of the bestselling Pete the Cat books.
Pete is having fun, and happy, as he goes around the neighbourhood wearing his favorite shirt—the one with the four totally groovy buttons.
But suddenly he loses one of his buttons. It's GONE!!! But does Pete cry? NO! Instead, he keeps on playing and having fun, wearing his favorite shirt —now with three groovy buttons.
What will happen next? What will Pete the Cat do? Will he cry? No!
I found and read this book to my little sister while we were at the book section at Costco, waiting for mom and dad to finish shopping (It was a hardcover version and cost almost $20.00, so we weren't allowed to buy it). Later, at a scholastic book fair, paperback version, and bought it. That night, we finally finished the book and loved it.
I love books, especially books with morals; I call them "Once Upon a Moral" (OUM), and "Morally Ever After" (MEA). Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Button is one of my favorite, and plus, the word groovy sounds so fun and interesting and hip. Though I liked this book quite a bit, I did get a bit bored, but that's probably because I've just finished reading Ender's Game and all other books just seem so dull to me now.
If you're a parent in need of a good bed time story to tell your children, I totally recommend Pete the Cat and all of Eric Litwin's other children books because our children are the future, we want to raise them right. I also recommend Dr. Seuss for those creative little artists and wordsmiths.
