School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 1-Cool dude Pete the Cat is now driving a yellow school bus and picking up kitties along his route. After covering the traditional lines about horns that go "beep, beep, beep" and wipers that go "swish, swish, swish," this book offers up a surprise conclusion. Pete picks up one lone dog and a few pages later, the pooch is seen driving the bus, while Pete the Cat croons from the rooftop, "Let's Rock Out!" The colorful yellow and blue artwork rendered in the artist's familiar pen-and-ink and watercolor will remind fans of the other Pete books, with their hero sporting that deadpan stare. If your library doesn't already have too many "Wheels on the Bus" clones, Pete the Cat's version is cool.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA (c) Copyright 2013.

Horn Book Review

Slack-eyed, unblinking Pete puts down his guitar (for a bit) and drives a school bus. The sing-along standard serves as the text: the wipers swish, the signals blink, etc., and there are a few modifications as well: "Sit with us!"; "Let's rock out!" Not much happens and no one's expression changes, but it's a colorful ride nonetheless. (c) Copyright 2014. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
