Featuring four frolicking kitty capers, Jake and Pete follows Gillian Rubinstein’s fetching feline siblings as they stray far from home. Versatile actor Alan King personifies the "kitkid" cat family in his strikingly rangy falsetto, his unique character portraits and singsong tempo sure to catch young listeners’ attention. Out on their own, Jake and Pete find themselves constantly dodging broomsticks, buses, and boots. The two rely on the newfound friends they meet on the road, including canine couple Lass and Laddie - fellow strays - and a kindly boggart named Bog, charged with watching the Garden of Lost Things, where missing objects go to find their owners. The pair join the circus, having mastered the art of "catrobatics", and attend a marriage of magpies.
This collection includes Jake and Pete and the Catcrowbats, Jake and Pete and the Magpies' Wedding, and Jake and Pete and the Stray Dogs.
