What Pete Ate A - Z
by Maria Kalman
Puffin Books 2003
Ages: 5 to 7
Topic: ABC Books
This book will engage your child! Pete first ate "an accordian. All of it!" Then this dog devours such things as "Mrs. Parsley's pink Pocketbook", "a stinky sneaker" and yes, even "underpants". But he is still loved, "Quite a lot".
You will adore this incorrigible dog as well as all the little asides the illustrator has put into the book for the grown up reader.
