A wild and whimsical tale of two babies—one human and one coyote—who swap places and find they fit much better in their new wilder and cozier homes . . . until they start missing their parents.

Pete, a coyote cub, is good at tidying his nest and likes to take it slow during full pack runs—even if pausing means getting left behind. Leonie, a human baby, climbs to new (and dangerous) heights and goes wild during tea parties.

When the two unexpectedly meet, it feels like the perfect opportunity to swap places—soon Leonie’s able to run free and roll around in dirt (no diapers necessary!) while Pete can curl up and snooze inside without getting dirty. But soon the two start missing their families. When bath time reveals the switcheroo, their parents have to figure out how to get these babies back to their proper home!

Pete and Leonie is a visually charming book about a wild baby and a gentle coyote. Neither fit into their family's expectations very well until one day they each wander into the other's home and get mistaken for each other. The illustrations are the perfect complement to the text and enhance the story. Through the illustrations, we see many humorous situations as the great baby mix-up continues through the day. Each baby loves their new home but does miss their old home after a while. The resolution to the story is lovely. Overall, children will enjoy this silly tale and pour over the illustrations to join in the humorous surprises along the way.
