Summary: Pete, the dog, was on his way to his grandma’s house to give her a birthday present when he decided to get off the busy highway. Pretty soon he was lost. He got directions from the bear in the woods, the buffalo on the plains, the jaguar in the jungle, and the whale in the ocean. Soon he found Mutt Street and his grandma.

Literary Merit: Easy vocabulary. Phrase repetition.

Kid Appeal: What happens when a dog (pet) gets lost? Can he find his way home? What adventures could he have along the way?
