    While I can appreciate the premise, the execution is still disappointing. As usual, Pete remains strongest because of his illustrations. The cute (potentially repeated) rhyming chorus was only said twice ("From rocking red / to cool cat blue / with a boxy of crayons, / there's nothing / Pete can't do!"). But then there was a second chorus-type ditty ("Hey, no sweat. That's all right! The next one will be just right.") that was repeated instead/also. I just wish the language had been tightened up While I can appreciate the premise, the execution is still disappointing. As usual, Pete remains strongest because of his illustrations.

I just wish the language had been tightened up on this. Make just one chorus! Make the rest of the text not rhyme so the repeated rhymes stick out more! Kids want to know what to expect. They want to join in and repeat a rhyme with the reader. If you make it easier, the kids will become more engaged in the story and be more motivated to become readers themselves. But I guess the drawings will entice them, too...

    Pete loves coloring with his rocking crayons but his friends don't appreciate his art. He loses his confidence until his teacher and friends remind him that art is for everyone and can be whatever is created. The familiar rhyme scheme pulls readers in to see his latest adventures.

    Pete the Cat fans will still like this book about creating art. The overall message is supposed to be that there is no right or wrong way to create art, but you do what makes you feel happy. Unfortunately, the book just didn't wow me. It begins with Pete creating special pictures for each of his friends. When he gives his pictures to each one, they all show their disappointment and make Pete feel like he is a horrible artist.

I kept reading just to see how the author might try to salvage the story, but overall, this is not a good message for kids. Additionally, the rhyming that makes Pete the Cat so fun, does not work well. Right is rhymed with .... right. It was difficult to read aloud.

    Pete the Cat uses his groovy crayons to draw pictures of all his friends. They’re a little critical of his work and hurt his feelings, but in the end he finds out it doesn’t matter how good he draws because his friends like his work because he made it. It’s Pete the Cat and kids are going to love it! The illustrations are awesome, and the book as a whole is fun. That said, it didn’t really make sense. The other animals kind of put down his drawings only to say later that they still like them becau Pete the Cat uses his groovy crayons to draw pictures of all his friends.

It’s a kids book so maybe I’m reading into it too much, but this made the story feel awkward.

    Pete is disappointed when his artwork doesn't come out just right, but by the end of the book learns that art is about the joy it creates, not about being perfect. I like the music references with some of the crayon colors..."Deep Purple" and "Mellow Yellow," and as always, the fun '60s slang thrown in.

    Pete the Cat has a box of crayons, and decides to try his hand at drawing his friends, but their critique of his art work gives Pete the Cat second thoughts about his skills. His teacher reassures him that the best art comes from the heart.
