This is Pete the Cat. Pete followed us home from the bookstore today. Lucy intimated that she is still head of the household. Pete is okay with that.
We already had the book about his 4 Groovy Buttons. Ben loves to sing the song. In the story, Pete has a jacket with "Groovy Buttons" that keep popping off and rolling away.
It is a sweet little story. Each time Pete loses a button, the narrator asks, "Did he cry? Goodness no. Buttons come and buttons go". Pretty soon Pete is down to just his own groovy bellybutton. He happily sings about that button too.
Ironically, Pete didn't come with a belly button. At Ben's request, I had to sew this one on.
