Pete’s updates have pizzazz!

Pete, a favorite character from the popular Ella books, gets his very own series! Pete is a little out of it sometimes, but that’s OK, everyone loves Pete. Now Pete’s teacher has given him a summertime assignment: keep a journal. At first things don’t go too smoothly, but the oddball uncle who stays for a visit changes things, and before long Pete is tapping away all the time.

The book features Pasi Pitkänen’s vivacious illustrations. Pete’s Blog is the start of a new series from Timo Parvela (b. 1964) and Pasi Pitkänen (b. 1984).

‘Here was a true artist at work together with Timo Parvela being one of the best children’s book authors in the world.’ –

‘Timo Parvela delights as usual with his trademark contrasts between children and slightly weird adults. In between comic mishaps are tons of easy-to-read dialogue, comics and lists of silly things.’ –  Books From Finland
