Pete the Cat and the New Guy

Cover: 'Pete the Cat and the New Guy'

Staff Review: "Pete the Cat and the New Guy" by Kimberly Dean, James Dean


Pete the Cat is easily one of my favorite children's book characters. In this story, Pete meets Gus the Platypus and tries to help him fit into his new neighborhood. When Gus has a hard time trying out everyone's favorite activities, Pete tries to cheer him up. What they learn is that Gus has a special talent that is unique to him that he can share with his new friends. By sharing what makes them each special, they all benefit in the end.

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book, easy reader
