Pete the Cat’s 12 Groovy Days of Christmas

Kimberly Dean and James Dean. HarperCollins, $12.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-06-267527-9
In a riff on “The 12 Days of Christmas,” Pete the Cat celebrates the holiday in his usual nonplussed fashion. For each day, Pete gives gifts to his friends, including previously appearing characters. The first gift sets the stage: “On the first day of Christmas/ Pete gave to me... a road trip to the sea. Groovy!” One by one, the animal friends load into Pete’s yellow bus. Pete gifts his friends with “four far-out surf boards,” “eight guitars strumming,” and even “five onion rings”—all packed into or precariously stacked atop the bus. The book concludes on the 12th day, with a musical beach party. Though the lyrics aren’t quite as smooth as Pete himself, the Christmas road trip is a “rockin’ ” diversion. Ages 4–8. (Sept.)
