Pete the Cat

A groovy adventure of one cool, skateboarding, surfing, rocking blue cat and his fine friends. Inspired by the NY Times bestseller series by Kimberly and James Dean.

Online Puppet Playdate

This classic tale comes to life through an interactive performance with colorful hand puppets. It’s the story of a hen who finds a grain of wheat. She wants to harvest the wheat but none of the other barnyard animals will help her, so she decides to do it all herself.
