Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 1-Cool dude Pete the Cat is now driving a yellow school bus and picking up kitties along his route. After covering the traditional lines about horns that go "beep, beep, beep" and wipers that go "swish, swish, swish," this book offers up a surprise conclusion. Pete picks up one lone dog and a few pages later, the pooch is seen driving the bus, while Pete the Cat croons from the rooftop, "Let's Rock Out!" The colorful yellow and blue artwork rendered in the artist's familiar pen-and-ink and watercolor will remind fans of the other Pete books, with their hero sporting that deadpan stare. If your library doesn't already have too many "Wheels on the Bus" clones, Pete the Cat's version is cool.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VAα(c) Copyright 2013.

From the Back Cover

The kitties on the bus say,
"Come on, Pete!
Come on, Pete!"

The kitties on the bus say,
"Come on, Pete!
Hop on board!"

Pete the Cat can't wait to drive the school bus all the way to school! Everyone's favorite cat is groovier than ever in this way- cool adaptation of the classic kids' song "The Wheels on the Bus"!

My 2 year old daughter loves this book!

Pete the Cate is funny and memorable to children, plus he learns lots of very good lessons and helps to teach those to the kids (of all ages) who read his books.

It is very colorful with great illustrations.

It's not always all good. The Pete books by Eric Litwin are wonderful. There won't be any more by Mr. Litwin. Folks should be aware of this. We received this book at our library this week. After reading it and finding it lacking, I immediately wrote an email asking why it was not written by Eric Litwin. I received a very positive email back from Mr. Litwin. He had nothing negative to say, but wants folks to be aware that he will not be writing any more Pete books. Buttons come and buttons go, but do we cry? Goodness NO!

I absolutely adore the other Pete the Cat books. This one was just completely disappointing. I wish I would have read the reviews before purchasing. It is nothing like the other Pete the Cat books and instead is another version of wheels on the bus.

The art work for Pete the Cat books is always the star of the show and "The Wheels on the Bus" artwork does not disappoint. I was a little disappointed to find very little other than the standard words to the children's song as text. One of the best parts of the first Pete books were Pete's Groooovy asides. Even a few more of those would have livened it up.

I love Pete the Cat. However, I am not a fan of this new book. It doesn't have Pete's personality in it. It is just someone making money of Pete's popularity with an old song.

This is the standard version of Wheels on the Bus, set to the art in the Pete the Cat style. My girls and I are all Pete fans, so this was welcomed. But for those expecting more of a Pete story, you'll be missing that in this book. We don't have another Wheels on the Bus book so this version was great for us. My 2 year old pretends to be the librarian and "reads" this to us. Because of the repetition & rhyming, she's pretty good!

Update: Again, we don't have any other Wheels on the Bus books, so maybe its that theme, but my mother in law read aloud this book to a group of 2, 3 & 6 yr old girls and had them roaring. When the 3 year old was leaving for home that afternoon I offered her our book to keep. My girls balked, so I opened up the Amazon app on my phone and in seconds had another copy sent to our house. With free Prime shipping it arrived the next morning! Less than 24 hours after I gave our book away we had a new copy in our hands!!

My boys love this book! I think I read/sing this book about 10 times a day. Perfect for toddlers and babies.

Not the Pete the Cat quality I was expecting. Too predictable, but guess I should have known that. Love my other Pete books.

My granddaughter likes the Pete books, but this was not up to the usual standards. It was just a rehash of the song, with no lesson attached to it or none of Pete's usual "coolness."
