Purebred and razzle-dazzle pink, Pete the poodle is the biggest star in the Circus Martinez.
Illustrated by John Manders, Tripp tells an amusing story in Pete and Fremont. In the story, Pete is an elderly poodle who had been the star of a small traveling circus for several years. When he misses the mark and singes his tale during a jump through a flaming hoop, Pete gets recast as a canine cannonball by circus owner Moliere.
Screenwriter Tripp's Disney-esque debut pairs an aging circus poodle and a huge, unhappy bear. Pete, aka Pierre LeChien-"But if you call me Powder Puff, I just might take a piece out of your pants"-is proud to be top dog in Monsieur Moliere's Performing Pups. Despite their eventual triumph, Pete comes to realize that Fremont will never be happy under the Big Top, and so with help from the circus's other animal performers, engineers his escape back to the wild. A heartwarming tale of interspecies bonding; you can almost hear the soundtrack.
