School Library Journal - 03/01/2014 PreS-Gr 1—Pete the Cat is yet again inspiring sing-alongs, this time on Old MacDonald's farm. The book goes through the song with 17 different animals, each one keeping strictly to the familiar lyrics with no other textual additions. Each verse is accompanied by a spread illustration of that animal and Pete, either holding a guitar or driving a truck or tractor. The book has the repetition that readers have come to expect, but it is not original; it's simply an Old MacDonald picture book with illustrations featuring Pete the Cat. Those expecting the catchy original songs found in the first three "Pete the Cat" titles (HarperCollins) will be disappointed. However, for libraries that cannot keep enough Pete books on the shelves, this will do.—Emily E.
