Husband and wife team James and Kimberly Dean explore the kittenhood of their famous feline character Pete the Cat in this tenth full-sized picture-book devoted to his adventures. Excited at the prospect of a playdate with his friend, Grumpy Toad, Pete the Kitty finds to his surprise that his playmate isn't interested in sharing any of his toys. Can this kitty convince his batrachian friend that sharing makes playing more fun...?

I appreciated the message of sharing explored in Pete the Kitty and the Groovy Playdate, a message that, like many of the recent Pete the Cat books, is also subtly highlighted through the biblical reference on the title page, in this case, to 2 Corinthians 9:7. That said, I found the meter of this 'poetic' picture-book somewhat off, and thought that most of the rhymes were quite forced. James Dean's artwork is colorful and bright, as it always is, but I finished the book with the feeling that this franchise is getting a little bit... thin. Still, determined young fans will undoubtedly enjoy this look at their favorite cat's youth, and it is to them that I would recommend the book. For those who are looking for children's stories about sharing, but aren't already Pete the Cat fans, I would recommend titles like the recent Pie is to Share, a wonderful new Fourth of July story by Stephanie Parsley Ledyard and Jason Chin.
