  • Pete the Cat is already purchased as we are cat fans in this house! I have gotten Inspector Dewey by Kristin Heimerl, inspectordewey.com. This is a great story, and she has some proceeds going to Vet care and that is a cool teaching tool I think! We just love cats, so this works, plus it’s a fun book!
