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!
James Dean’s art has sold in more than ninety galleries and shops across the United States. He has devoted his paintings to Pete the Cat for ten years and has turned his natural love for cats into his life’s work. James published his first adult book, The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a history of his art work, in 2006. He illustrated his first self-published children’s book, Pete the Cat I Love my White Shoes, written by Eric Litwin, in 2008, and the follow-up book, Pete the Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes, in 2011. James lives in Savannah, Georgia with his wife, Kimberly.
In 2004, Kimberly & James Dean sat down at their kitchen table to work on a children’s book together. Their dream has finally become a reality with the release of this new Pete the Cat book, Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses. Both left corporate jobs in the late nineties (James was an electrical engineer, Kimberly worked in the press office of the governor of Georgia) to pursue their passion for art, and they have experienced a life made up of strange and wonderful coincidences ever since. Pete the Cat has brought magic into their lives. They work in side-by-side studios, sharing their home with five cats and Emma the pug.
Pete The Cat is a fun and engaging children's book that every child will love and what makes this book extra special is how parents can personalize the book which really grabs the kids attention and makes them feel extra special and really a part of the book.
I love how Pete's friend Toad realizes that Pete is sad and he wants to cheer him up so he gives him a pair of magic sunglasses which immediately makes Pete happier and then throughout the day Pete realizes that he doesn't need magic sunglasses to make him happy...he has friends that make him happy.
Pete The Cat shows children how to be happy and look for the good in everything and it also teaches positivity in life and how good friends make for a happy life. I highly recommend this really cute book to anyone with a young child who loves engaging, fun personalized books.
