Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-In the first early level reader, Pete tries to have fun building sand castles, eating sandwiches, and searching for shells, but the hot sun makes him sizzle while his brother is out there riding his surfboard, staying nice and cool. Finally, the heat gets to Pete and he decides to try the water. He faces his fear of the big waves and, after a few attempts, is surfing just like Bob. Strong artwork, summer hues, and familiar characters make this a great addition to collections. In Whale of a Tale, Splat the Cat goes to the beach for vacation and promises to find the perfect seashell to bring home to his grandpa. As he begins his search, he is pulled in all directions, helping his dad set up the beach umbrella, spelling names in the sand for his sister, and, of course, stopping for fish and ice cream. Finally, he gets his chance to search for shells but he just can't seem to find the right one until he stumbles into the water and lands on a friendly whale who helps him with his mission. The artwork and perspective are well designed, and whimsical drawings assist new readers with context clues and even inspire a few giggles. Two solid choices for emergent readers.-Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From the Back Cover

My five year old Grandson loves Pete. The message to try at your own time is one well taken. My grandson always holds his Pete the Cat doll while we read-- noticing how Pete's tail shape echoed the shape of the ocean waves. Pete is encouraging and happy. Content on his own and trying new things. We love Pete!

Not nearly as well written and entertaining as some of the other Pete The Cat books. My 4 & 5 year old granddaughters did not enjoy it.

"I can read" is a wonderful inspiration for young kids, motivated by their curiosity to share the joyful stories and amazing artwork and bright colors of Pete the Cat." Grandpa Didaskalex

My grandson Oliver, a six years old artist -in his own right-, loves books and his older brother shares his enthusiasm. This is a timely subject, refreshing for both kids and their parents. To share them with Pete is even more refreshing. Enjoying beach activities, for young kids, is an encounter with nature, a fascinating ocean, perpetual waves and shores.

I agree with James Dean art teachers that he got talent, as I read the first of Pete the cat series, not only in artistic expression, but education that entertains and inspires kids to read. The authors create enjoyable characters that convey a cheerful message. To enhance a kids to read is a great achievement, and it adds a degree of freedom to them.

But the size of the book makes it tough to enjoy them and the story line is just not as muc fun as the original Pete the Cat books. I have heard the original author is no longer writing the series and it shows. We probably will not buy any more.

I don't like that this book doesn't repeat the way White shoes, Groovy Buttons and School shoes do. I think the repeating is what makes their other books so fun.

Older kids can read these books, but adults can read them to the 2-3 year old set, and they love it. This one is about Pete overcoming his fear of the ocean. Many small kids have this problem. Some aren't going to understand what surfing is, but they get the idea that Pete got over his fear.
