About the Book

In this story of an accidental journey turned epic adventure, early readers will delight in all of Pete's stops on the way to visit Grandma.

When Pete sets off for Grandma's house, he runs into bad traffic. He tries a different route, and soon finds himself lost on a woodsy road. "Where is Mutt Street?" he asks a bear. "That way," the bear replies. As Pete follows directions from different animals he meets, he finds himself in the desert, the jungle and even the arctic! By the time Pete finally reaches Mutt Street, he's traveled through all sorts of climates and encountered a multitude of friendly animals. But of course, it was all worth it to see Grandma's smiling face!
