Who doesn’t love groovy buttons? The award-winning character Pete the Cat certainly does, and in his latest adventure he keeps smiling and singing, ever with an optimistic view of life, staying positive despite losing his special buttons. The illustrations are bright with simple lines, encouraging a reader to draw their own pictures of Pete. He sings his groovy song about his groovy buttons. (Go to www.harpercollins.co.uk/petethecat to hear this.) But POP! One button pops off and rolls away. How many buttons are left? Does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He keeps on singing his song, whilst we see another button fly off, Pete sailing happily down the road on his skateboard. For he believes that buttons come and buttons go. As the losses mount up, the numerals 4, 3, 2, 1… appear, super large, with their subtraction sum below. When Pete stops for an icecream, POP! Off goes his last groovy button. Surely now he will show some concern? But no! He looks down at his open, yellow shirt, and spies… his belly button! In our last view of Pete he is riding the waves on a surf board, belly button bared! Lots to discuss in this book, and readers may well want to find further adventures of Pete, the singing cat.
