Reviews - What do customers think about Bill and Pete To Rescue (Picture Puffins)?

Bill and Pete to the Rescue-- by: Tomie dePaola  Mar 12, 2003
A classic tale of good versus evil, this book is a touching story about the things people (or crocodiles) will do for their family. It teaches that no matter how different you may be with your relatives, you are still family and should help each other.
Bill and Pete go all the way from Egypt to the United States to rescue Bill's cousin, Jane Allison. Many mishaps occur, but all is well at the end of the story. There is also a suprise ending, but you have to read the book to find out. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a little family-oriented adventure.
 
Silliness You Can ALL Enjoy  May 6, 2002
I don't know what I liked most about this book -- the sly, dry humor or the wonderfully naive illustrations. This is a funny, funny book about a pair of really good friends -- a young crocodile and his young toothbrush (a bird). It also is a grand adventure with suspense and action. Quite a lot for a book for 4-8 year olds. Here's one you won't mind reading again and again.
 
Hey I enjoyed it!  Mar 1, 2001
I am shopping for books for my little baby nephew, hes only 8 months old, but for his first birthday i am getting him lots of books. I read Bill and Pete when i was little and i STILL like reading them! i am SO excited to see another Bill and Pete book! that just made my day!
 
Bill & Pete  Feb 13, 2000
My three year old son enjoyed this book so much I went to the library and took out, Bill & Pete Go Down the Nile & Bill & Pete To The Rescue. He requested they be read to him every evening, when I had to return them, he was so sad. He asked me if we could buy them so he could have them always.
 
Great book to teach about how one person can make a differen  Nov 5, 1999
My 3 year old daughter got this book as a birthday gift and she loved it! The book introduces kids to the issues of endangered species, and through Bill and Pete's action it teaches them how each one can make a difference.
