Cute story and is a good reminder of the spirit of Christmas. Illustrations, as usual, are fun and colourful.

Another Pete the Cat great story! The message of this book is very sweet, reminds us that Christmas is a time to give and help, but the song is not as upbeat or as catchy as in Litwin's other books. I noticed in storytime that the parents liked this book more than the children, which wasn't the case for Pete the Cat's other adventures. A great book for parents and children to enjoy together at Christmas and talk about the real meaning of this time of the year.

Pete the Cat, a favourite character in the world of children’s picture books, returns for a fourth adventurein Pete the Cat Saves Christmas.

On the day before Christmas, Santa, sick with a winter chill, knows that he won’t be able to deliver the toys from his workshop to children around the world that night. He phones his friend, Pete the Cat, for help.

Ditching his surfboard, Pete sets out for the North Pole from his home in Key West, driving his red minibus. Despite his fear that he might be too small to complete Santa’s huge task, he is determined to “give it his all” … and this is exactly what he does. Upon reaching the North Pole, the reindeer are hitched to his minibus and they set off around the world – successfully - to make Santa’s Christmas Eve toy deliveries. (“The minibus flew, just like in a movie. / Pete
the Cat cried, “This is totally groovy!”)

Eric Litwin’s humourous, playful parody of The Night Before Christmas, told in catchy rhyming verse, highlights the true meaning of Christmas with its positive message of sharing, caring and giving. The bright, amusing artwork of illustrator James Dean adds to the enormous appeal of this laid-back, “cool” cat with his customary dead-pan expression. Young listeners will love this story!

Eric Litwin and James Dean have also collaborated on Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons, Pete the Cat I Love my White Shoes and Pete the Cat Rocking in my School Shoes, all of which can be found at the Stratford Public Library.
