Staff Reviews


Pete is an adorable lump of an elephant who wants to tell jokes. As he plays, he tries to figure out what he is through comparisons. A sweet, humorous story of perception and the confusing, ongoing search for identity, Pete's journey provides an entry point into conversations of categorization and point-of-view while also being a giggle-inducing storytime pick.

— From Pete with No Pants

Description


Meet Pete.

Pete is gray. He's round. And he's not wearing any pants.

So Pete must be a boulder. Or is he a pigeon? Or a squirrel? Or a cloud?

Join Pete in his quest to answer the world's oldest question: Why do I have to wear pants? Wait, that's the second oldest. Born from the one-of-a-kind imagination of Rowboat Watkins, this hilarious book (the asides just beg to be read aloud) about finding out who you are features a satisfying and touching ending that will encourage young readers to be true to themselves as it reminds the adults in their lives to support them no matter what.

About the Author


Rowboat Watkins is a dad who likes to tell stories and draw. Nobody knows why his wife started calling him Rowboat. He was a fellow of Maurice Sendak's and lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.
