#1 New York Times bestseller!

Author and artist James Dean brings us along for a hippity-hoppity Easter adventure with the coolest cat around--Pete!

Pete jumps in to help the Easter Bunny in Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure--which comes complete with a poster, stickers, and a set of punch-out card.

When Pete wakes up Easter morning, ready to check out his basket of goodies, he discovers the Easter Bunny needs a little extra help. Our favorite groovy blue cat puts on his bunny ears and finds a way to collect, paint, and hide the eggs all in time for Easter!

Publisher's Weekly Review

Pete the cat's yellow, dead-eyed stare is always good for a laugh, and it's even better when he's wearing big white bunny ears, a buck-toothed rabbit snout, and a puffy white tail. It's all in a day's work for Pete after he agrees to lend the Easter Bunny a hand ("Find the eggs. Paint the eggs. Hide the eggs," reads the note Pete discovers in his otherwise empty Easter basket). The story itself is quite thin-after painting the eggs, Pete quickly hides them and receives a "#1 Helper" ribbon from the Easter Bunny himself for his efforts ("Helping others can be lots of fun!" reads the tacked-on closing message). Readers are more likely to be drawn in by all the extras tucked into the pages, which include stickers, a foldout poster, and a dozen perforated Easter cards that can be removed and given away.
