Pete the Cat is back!

Meet Pete the Cat!

Meet Pete, the groovy blue cat.
He likes movin', groovin' and schoolin'.
No matter where he goes,
Pete the Cat always keeps his cool!

If you haven't been introduced you are probably looking at this picture thinking what is the big deal?!?  Well I was hooked after hearing his catchy little song.  But there is so much more to Pete the Cat than his song.  One of my favorite things from the books is the lessons we can learn from Pete.  Pete never gets angry or throws a fit when things don't go his way--he just makes the best of it and keeps going.  

Pete the Cat is back in New York Times bestselling artist James Dean's picture book Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses, written by Kimberly Dean. Pete the Cat wakes up feeling grumpy—nothing seems to be going his way. But with the help of some magic sunglasses, Pete learns that a good mood has been inside him all along. Fans of Pete the Cat will love watching him take his positive outlook and transform a grumpy day into an awesome day!

We're pleased to invite you to celebrate the release of Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses.  Join us to party Pete-style with "cat food" (goldfish crackers) and juice.  All children will receive a free pair of "magic sunglasses" to take home!
