Overview

Is there anything Pete won’t eat? Poppy Wise’s sweet but unruly dog starts with Nico’s accordion and works his way through the alphabet, making a nuisance of himself by leaving nothing untouched, not even glue sticks or Uncle Norman’s underpants. Despite Pete’s ravenous ways, a frazzled Poppy Wise can’t help loving him. Kids will laugh at Pete’s impossible cuisine, adults will appreciate the offbeat sense of humor, and both will love the artwork that perfectly captures the fun of the text in this unique alphabet book only Maira Kalman could create.

Praise

Kalman unleashes her extravagant whimsy in this loquacious alphabet book. (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Richly witty in both the text and the illustrations. (The New York Times Book Review)
