Or is he a pigeon? Or a squirrel? Or a cloud?

Join Pete in his quest to answer the world’s oldest question: Why do I have to wear pants? Wait, that’s the second oldest. Born from the one-of-a-kind imagination of Rowboat Watkins, this hilarious book (the asides just beg to be read aloud) about finding out who you are features a satisfying and touching ending that will encourage young readers to be true to themselves as it reminds the adults in their lives to support them no matter what.

Some questions aren’t easy to answer at all.

There’s something to be said for snappy dialogue that keeps the plot moving at a fast pace. Given how quickly Pete moved from scene to scene, it made sense for his conversations to be wrapped up as soon as they were. I honestly wouldn’t have expected anything else from these characters. A few short sentences per page were more than enough to get their points across, and sometimes they even needed less room than that.

The ending didn’t make a great deal of sense to me. After watching Pete try to figure out what sort of creature or object he was, I was not expecting him to come to the conclusion he did. It simply didn’t match the tone of the rest of his tale, so I felt disappointed when I realized that my time with these characters was suddenly finished. I enjoyed the beginning and middle quite a bit. If the last few scenes had followed that same pattern, I would have chosen a much higher rating.

Some of the funniest scenes were the ones that showed how the other members of the forest reacted to Pete as he searched for his answers. Their relationships with him were as silly as they were interesting. I couldn’t wait to find out if their assumptions about who and what this little fellow was would match his own decisions on the matter.

I’d recommend Pete with No Pants to anyone who has ever wished they didn’t have to wear uncomfortable clothing.


  1. This made me smile, even though the ending didn’t make sense. That cover is too cute!
