PETE THE CAT SAVES CHRISTMAS has more story than other Pete the Cat books, and Pete seems less dazed and more than just deadpan. In this one he's actually engaged and heroic, and gives "his all" for the kids of the world. The bright ink-and-watercolor illustrations are suitably snowy and cheery, and it's especially fun to see the minibus and reindeer parked on a rooftop and flying through the air. There's a nice message, too, of being willing to take on a challenge when asked and helping others in need.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
