Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different This Pete the Cat book is different from all the other Pete the cat books we read. but it's still good. It has a great moral. It's okay to make mistakes, Be remorseful, say sorry, be truthful... friends will forgive and give you another chance. Pete made cupcakes for a cupcake party , however while cooling, they started to disappear. Who took the cupcakes? a fun mystery.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I think I'm missing something... I don't get it, but this is the only Pete the Cat book we own. People rave about it, but I found the rhyming and rhythm in this one kind of off and therefore distracting. Hoping the others are better? #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For Pete Lovers' Pete returns to solve a mystery and do some math! Not my favourite Pete story, I really miss the rhyming verse that children love to repeat. However he does teach young ones subtraction in a fun way.
