What Pete Ate from A to Z: 03/18/10
What Pete Ate from A to Z was one of Sean's first books. His paternal grandparents gave it to him. It's a book we've had for years and read many times. Harriet recently discovered it on the shelf she shares with her brother. I was surprised that I hadn't already reviewed it on this blog.
Pete in the book eats through the alphabet and is written in a similar fashion to the later Bad Kitty and Poor Puppy books by Nick Bruel.
From the last page of the book, Pete is apparently a real dog. Now whether or not he has such an exotic appetite, the book doesn't say. But it does make one think.
Maira Kalman also did the illustrations for the book. She has a long and varied career both as a children's picture book author and a designer and editor of books. You can see examples of her work on her website.

We read this book from the library and it was okay but not as good as I was expecting. My eldest liked it though.

It's an okay book but we're keeping it mostly for sentimental reasons.
