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! In this story of an accidental journey turned epic adventure, early readers will delight in all of Pete's stops along the way to Mutt Street, where Grandma is there to greet him. An I Like to Read® book for emerging readers. Guided Reading Level C.
