New York Times bestselling author and artist James Dean brings us a new story about the classiest cat around—Pete!
Pete makes the best cupcakes!
My family LOVES Pete the Cat books and we always get excited when a new title is released. This is especially true of the newest Pete book that is all about cupcakes. I love when Pete’s adventures surround his friendships and since this is a story about cupcakes that go missing, you can imagine it is also a story about redemption and forgiveness. It’s a wonderful book, especially for my first grader, about navigating the sometimes tricky things that pop up when a friend does something you may not like, but also being able to find a quick and simple resolution to something that, overall, isn’t a big deal. YES!!!!
In Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes, Pete and his friend Gus bake EXACTLY TEN cupcakes for their upcoming party. Ten cupcakes soon turn to nine…then eight…then…. HEY! Who is taking their cupcakes? What are they going to do about the goodies for the party? Join Pete the Cat in a brand-new story and help him and his friends find the missing cupcakes. When they discover which one of their friends ate ALL of the cupcakes, the important question is what are they going to do? Can he come to the party? Cool as ever Pete says, “But wait! (He) made a mistake. This is true. Let’s give him a second chance. That’s what friends do!” Instead of ostracizing their friend, they forgive their friend and allow him to make amends, which is an awesome lesson for kids and an important way to live. In this latest Pete the Cat picture book adventure, by New York Times bestselling authors James and Kimberly Dean, Pete and the gang learn that it’s cool to be kind. It’s even cooler when Pete can perform with his groovy band for his all friends and they have even MORE CUPCAKES! As always, Pete the Cat is an awesome read!
Don’t miss Pete’s other adventures, including Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes, Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons, Pete the Cat Saves Christmas, Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses, and Pete the Cat and the Bedtime Blues.

About the Authors: In 2004, Kimberly and James Dean sat down at their kitchen table to work on a children’s book together and it became a reality when Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses was released! Both left their corporate jobs in the late nineties to pursue their passion for art and they have experienced a life made up of strange and wonderful coincidences ever since. Pete the Cat has brought magic into their lives. James published his first adult book, The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a history of his artwork, in 2006. He illustrated his first self-published children’s book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, in 2008, and the follow-up book, Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes, in 2011.
