Pete has had a great day at the beach. Pete, along with his friends Gus the Platypus, Alligator, and Grumpy Toad, enjoyed a day of 'surf and sun and tons of fun.'

Not wanting the fun to end, Pete has a great idea. He invites his friends to stay for a sleepover! Great idea, Pete! But after pizza and playing it is time to catch some ZZZs.

'Clap! Clap! Clap! ... Rat-A-Tat-Tat! ... Munch! Munch! Munch!' Grumpy Toad, Gus, and Alligator are being very noisy. No sleep for Pete. This cool cat has the bedtime blues. A bedtime story is sure to soothe the noisy bunch. Pete grabs a book and starts to read to everyone. Goodnight, Grumpy Toad! Slumber well, Gus! Sweet Dreams, Alligator! Sleep tight, Pete!

You and your little one will enjoy the colorful illustrations as much as I did. The drawings are as much fun as the story. I especially liked Pete's adorable striped jammies and the groovy VW bus blanket on his bed.

Cool cats everywhere, aged four to eight, will enjoy this fun bedtime tale. The book even includes a double-sided door hanger for your bedroom. One side lets everyone know when it's time to come in and play and the flip side announces when your cool kitten is catching some ZZZs. Groovy!
