Recommended for Pre K – 4th Grades
Based on the “Pete the Cat” series of books by James Dean and Kimberly Dean. When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners – and boy are they square! But for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure not matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. All of the family except for the young Jimmy Biddle, who is the most organized second grader on planet earth. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW (Very Wonderful) bus.
