Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons

Publisher: Harper Collins

Review

With his jaunty ears and curly tail, Pete is one laid-back cat, possessing a unique feline sartorial elegance. His favourite shirt has four big, round, groovy buttons; he loves it so much he's composed a song about it.

But one day, a button pops off... leaving only three. Does Pete cry? Goodness no! As he says, buttons come, and buttons go. He sings his special button song and carries on, skateboarding, eating ice-cream, surfing... and the buttons keep popping off...

This book is fun! It's got counting, singing, rhyming and repetition. Pete's 'don't sweat the small stuff' life philosophy is engaging and the vibrant, almost perspective-less illustrations are strangely beautiful.
