New York Times bestselling author and artist James Dean takes readers along for an outdoor adventure with Pete the Cat!
In Pete the Cat Goes Camping, Pete can’t wait to go hiking, fishing, and eat s’mores by the campfire. But when he hears about the mysterious creature named Bigfoot, Pete can’t help but wonder: Is Bigfoot real?
James Dean’s art has sold in more than ninety galleries and shops across the United States. He has devoted his paintings to Pete the Cat for fifteen years and has turned his natural love for cats into his life’s work. James published his first adult book, The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a history of his artwork, in 2006. He illustrated his first self-published children’s book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, in 2008, and the follow-up book, Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes, in 2011. James lives in Savannah, Georgia, with his wife, four cats, and one dog
- Super cute story! Pete is with his whole family- mom, Dad and brother Bob, and they are camping. Talks about hiking, fishing, tent sleeping and Bigfoot. In the story Bigfoot is not Seen but leaves a note after Pete offers a kind gesture.
Easy read for my 3rd grader to read aloud, but fun for our whole crew. We are big Pete fans and this is one of my favorites so far!
- It talks about big foot as something scary. Then it it says is real.
My little one got too scare we gave it away. 😂
Love pete the cat books! Arrived on time, was packaged well no damage to book not bent or anything. My son LOVES these books, and i love to order them and surprise him with them in the mail!
We have two beginning readers who went camping this fall. We gave each the book and they love it and read it over and over- getting better at it each time.
Our son really enjoys all the books by James Dean. You can tell as a beginning reader that by the end of the book, he’s reading the harder words very easily. We get every one that comes out. Very very pleased !
We got this book right before our camping trip, and the kids HAD to leave bigfoot a s’more out of the table lol. Bigfoot also left a thank you note 😉
My kindergartner loves Pete the Cat, he is so proud that he can read these books himself. We love camping so this one is one of his favorites.
By far this is Pete’s favorite adventure at our house. The lesson is great (just because you look different doesn’t mean you’re scary!) and the little cat hiking boots are the perfect detail.
