Book 56/100: Pete the Cat - the Wheels on the Bus by James Dean
Pete the Cat: The Wheels on the Bus - James Dean

This is my first Pete the Cat book, and I know it's not representative since it's an adaptation of the Wheels on the Bus song rather than an original story. Still, it's tons of fun! The Wheels on the Bus is one of my favorite songs from childhood, and the rhythm it provides makes this a really fun readaloud (even if my month-old baby did start crying halfway through -- I'll force this book on him again when he's older.) Also, you can't really go wrong with these droll illustrations, which serve as a fun counterpoint to the actions you can do with your child at different points in the song. The illustrations seem to tell a subversive story all their own that is completely disregarded in the text -- like, why is there a lone dog riding this bus full of cats? Is he a dog on the outside but a cat on the inside? I look forward to exploring more Pete the Cat!

Bus Station Mystery
Bus Station Mystery - Gertrude Chandler Warner,David Cunningham

The mystery was so obvious to me that I kept wondering why everyone was confused for ~90% of the book. I remember Benny Uncovers a Mystery (#19) being a lot more mysterious when I was a kid though, so the intended audience of the Boxcar Children novels might enjoy this one.
