Santa knows just who to call when he needs help delivering presents on Christmas-everyone’s favorite groovy cat!
‘Twas the day before Christmas and Santa was ill.
In the cold winter wind he had caught a bad chill.
Will Christmas be canceled? Will it come to that?
“Never!” cried Santa. “Let’s call Pete the Cat!”
In this rockin’ new spin on the traditional tale “The Night Before Christmas,” Pete the Cat proves that giving your all in the spirit of Christmas is the totally groovy thing to do.

We loved Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons but this one was okay, just not quite as awesome. Christmas read aloud with a flavor of the Night Before Christmas.
