Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Get me some ugg boots to warm up my feet, plus a flax kete, and all will be sweet! Poor Pete. His best mate is a pet parakeet. But that fine-feathered, fancy-footed fast-talker is no ordinary bird, and soon life is sweet for Pete! A hilarious New Zealand retelling of Puss in Boots.
