PreS-Gr 1--Pete the Cat ventures into the ocean in search of an elusive sea horse in this easy reader. Pete describes each new creature he encounters as a contrast to the one he seeks. The bright pink sea horse is featured on each page for readers to spot, letting them in on the secret long before Pete finally catches a glimpse of his companion. With repetition of both the short sentences and new vocabulary that is introduced, Pete's scuba diving tale is consistent in quality with his other easy reader titles. While they do lack the rhyme and rhythm of Pete's picture book hits, fans learning to read independently will enjoy seeing their favorite cat in a new environment through Dean's distinctive cartoon paintings. VERDICT Purchase where Pete's other beginning readers are successful.--Amanda Foulk, Sacramento Public Library
