Booklist Review

Who knew Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star had so many verses? Now readers will know why they are rarely used. Even Pete the Cat, in all his skinny cuteness, can't overcome the awkward text: When the blazing sun is gone, / When he nothing shines upon. And this just sounds a little creepy: In the dark blue sky you keep, / and often through my curtains peep. Nor does the art serve to turn this into a cohesive whole. Alongside the first familiar stanza, Pete is looking through a telescope at dusk. For the next, the sun is rising, and along with his skateboard from the evening before, a baseball, bat, and soccer ball have appeared. The rest of the artwork follows the cat family through its day, but it doesn't always mesh with the verse. For instance, lines about a traveler using the tiny spark of light is illustrated by Pete holding up his spelling words while his mother cooks peas on the stove. Perhaps it's best not to overthink this? Pete has loads of fans, and the cover features shiny stars. That should do it.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist
