Pete the Cat has been hit by an arrow! Follow along with Pete on the groovy train of love and hear some Pete’s favourite love-struck quotes.

Pete the Cat is a must-read for any children’s librarian, but this book is just plain…weird. The illustrations are spot-on, but what kid wants to read a bunch of quotes by Audrey Hepburn, Plato, and Lucille Ball? If you’re on a tight collection budget, I’d skip this one.

Grade: C-
