From the Back Cover

'Twas the day before Christmas and Santa was ill.
In the cold winter wind he had caught a bad chill.
Will Christmas be canceled? Will it come to that?
"Never!" cried Santa.
"Let's call Pete the Cat!"

In this rockin' new spin on the traditional tale The Night Before Christmas, Pete the Cat proves that giving your all in the spirit of Christmas is the totally groovy thing to do.

Another wonderful Pete the Cat book! Eric Litwin and James Dean just keep giving and giving! Litwin's book once again shares a wonderful message for children, both young and old. Litwin's literary gift provides not only the joy of reading, but opportunities for teaching children to read. Thank you for GIVING us another special Pete the Cat story. My Kindergarten class and I LOVE it!!!

So much fun. Eric Litwin delivers another sweet Pete the Cat Performance Story, a parody of The Night Before Christmas, and what I hear as a sonic wink to John Lennon's Christmas song (you can listen to Eric's performance at [...]. James Dean's pictures are festive and warm. It's not the usual Pete set up, being a parody of The Night Before Christmas, but it's a nice holiday for Pete, and a good reason to discuss the nuances of the verb "give" with the kids.

Pete the Cat Saves Christmas is another winner! I'm giving it to my 4-year-old grandson for Christmas--along with a pair of white Converse High Tops!

Pete is an adorable, loveable cat with a positive attitude! When trouble happens does he give up--Goodness No!
Pete saves the day for an ailing Santa. Although the task is hard, Pete understands that the spirit of giving your all is what Christmas is about.
It's a gentle, not in-your-face, reminder to do nice things for others.

Merry Christmas, Pete!

I'm of two minds about this book. Mind one says "hurray! Another Pete book! My children will be so happy!"
Mind two says, "Christmas themed? Hmm. I dunno. This is starting to be a bit over-marketed."

So, I ordered the book with a bit of trepidation. The trepidation was all mine. My children did not care at all what the book was about other than it was another Eric Litwin book with James Dean's beautiful illustrations of Pete.

It came today. My children (both age 4) already love it. My daughter has declared it her favorite of the Pete books thus far (we'll see if she still feels that way in the years to come). My son is in love with all the new illustrations.

I'm a bit disappointed that a new video has not yet been released by Harper Collins to accompany the book as that has been a major part of their love for previous Pete books. Perhaps there will be one closer to the actual Christmas season. This is important as all Pete books have had songs that you sing parts of the books to. Without the video, it's hard to know how to sing the song. These sung words are really an integral part of children's love for the books. With no sing-along part, the books are still beautiful, but not the amazing experience they can be.

So there's that, aside from that, it's a sweet book. The basic plot is what you would expect from a "xxx saves Christmas" story. Pete replaces a sick Santa on Christmas Eve and gets the job done. The central aspect of this story is that Christmas is for giving, and that you give your all no matter how small you are.
All Pete books have a moral, this one feels a bit unfinished and hurried to me (my children do not agree).

What does not feel the least bit unfinished or hurried are James Dean's beautiful Pete illustrations.

Eric Litwin came to Jackson, MS to the preschool to read some books and sing some songs. I initially loved the white shoes book of his the best, but I LOVED the new Christmas book, and he would have brought some with him to sell! Can't wait for Christmas to get closer so I can read it to my kids. Great vocabulary and rhythm.

I am an elementary school librarian. Although I love the first three Pete the cat books, Pete the Cat Saves Christmas is my very favorite! Cannot wait to read to our children.

When I heard there was a new Pete the Cat book coming out for the holidays, I was excited about the idea of sharing yet another Pete book in my story times. Unfortunately, this book (and music) lacks the rhythm and joy of the previous books. Save your money. Stick with the first three Pete the Cats. Pass on this one.

(A Cross Post from Goodreads)

Frank Sinatra. Mariah Carey. Justin Bieber. N*Sync. Pete the Cat.

Now everyone has their own Christmas special, album, or book.

When Santa falls ill before the big day, who does he call? Pete the Cat, of course.

The fourth book in the Pete the Cat franchise is a reworking of the classic Twas the Night Before Christmas, but the book maintain's the Pete the Cat bottom line of appropriate responses to new challenges and a certain pluckiness that comes of celebrating one's. . .umm. . ."gifts."

Listen. . .the big kids out there. . .they like to learn the new songs. I catch them humming them on their way out of the room. Warms my heart. I'd like to think that some years from now, Pete the Cat will be on their own shelves that they share with their own readers because we introduced him back at SCHS in Room 407.

Now, I have an excuse to get that outfit for Room 407's Pete the Cat before the holidays!
