Pete and Repeat is a two-panel cartoon that has appeared in St. Anthony Messenger magazine since the 1960s. The first cartoon in a panel presents a drawing; the second cartoon has eight subtle differences from the first drawing. The task is for the reader to find these differences. An eight-line verse accompanies each month’s panel, always ending in the familiar and endearing:
These scenes may seem alike to you, But there are changes in the two. So look and see if you can name Eight ways in which they’re not the same.
These puzzles are great for family fun and will appeal to puzzlers of all ages! A handy answer key can be found in the back of the book.
Tom Greene is an artist and illustrator who has been creating the art for the Pete and Repeat puzzle in St. Anthony Messenger magazine since the early 1970s.
