From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 A slight episode about a navy-blue cat, new white shoes, and maintaining a positive outlook. Pete the Cat strolls down the street singing, I love my white shoes, I love my white shoes, I love my white shoes. Then he steps in (actually climbs up) a huge hill of strawberries that turn his pristine sneakers red. Did Pete cry? Goodness, no! He kept walking along and singing his song. I love my red shoes.... He proceeds to step in a mound of blueberries and then a mud puddle, each incident changing his sneakers to a new hue (the colors never blend). Unsmiling but placid, Pete takes it all in stride. After stepping into a bucket more like a tub of water, he notices that his sneakers are not only white again, but also wet. Even though they are back to their original color, the next illustration perplexingly shows Pete walking along with each shoe sporting one of the four colors highlighted in the book. Bright, childlike illustrations show the long-limbed feline regularly altering his footwear but continuing not to watch where he''s walking. The moral of the story keep going no matter what happens to you in life may sound like good advice, but it doesn''t instill any sense of power in children it just tells them to accept their fate. The downloadable song might help spark interest, but there''s not much here to get excited about. Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

Kimberly Dean is a children’s author, artist, and yoga enthusiast best known as a NYT bestselling author and co-parent of children’s book character Pete the Cat. Before fulfilling her dream of becoming a full-time author and artist, she worked for the State of Georgia, leaving the Governor’s Press Office in 1998 to pursue her art. 

She began selling her work at art festivals in 1999 and opened a small art gallery in 2003. She dabbles in multiple mediums and enjoys experimenting with new styles and techniques. She says of her job, “I love what I do!  Work is like going to kindergarten everyday!”

 In 2004, she began collaborating with fellow artist James Dean to create children’s books about Pete the Cat. The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a coffee table book of James’s art, was released in 2006. Her dreams of becoming a published children’s book author became a reality in 2013 with the release of her first children’s book, Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses. She has now written many of the Pete the Cat books, as well as started another series starring her own characters Willow and Oliver.

Kimberly lives in Savannah with her dog, Gypsy, and cat, Phoebe. Her children and grandchildren live nearby, and her favorite word is “Lovie,” which is the name her grandchildren lovingly call her.



James Dean is the original creator and illustrator of Pete the Cat. He is a self-taught artist originally from Fort Payne, Alabama. His passion for drawing became apparent at a young age, and as a child, you could find James drawing his favorite characters like Snoopy and Yogi Bear. 

James earned his degree in electrical engineering from Auburn University and went on to work for Georgia Power for a number of years. Eventually, he was called to pursue his art full-time and began selling his work at art festivals around the Southeast. 

It was during this time that he began creating paintings and drawing of his cat, Pete. The little blue cat showed up as a character in James’s artwork around 1999 and has been a permanent fixture ever since. 

James Dean’s art has been sold in more than ninety galleries and shops across the United States. He has devoted his paintings to Pete the Cat for fifteen years and turned his natural love for cats into his life’s work. James published his first book, The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a history of his artwork, in 2006, and he illustrated his first self-published children’s book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, in 2008. There are now almost 100 published Pete the Cat titles with more coming out all the time.

James is humbled every day by the success that this groovy blue cat has brought him. He says positively affecting children’s lives is his number one priority, and he is grateful to have such an amazing audience to work for.

My autistic 5 year old LOVES these Pete the Cat books! They''re simple enough for him to memorize, with small enough words to practice his actual reading skills and are fun to sing/recite! The pictures are simple but bright and vivid and the quality of the book itself is very high. We love to read along with the YouTube kids video that has the songs. On top of everything, the moral of the stories is really great regardless of your age! I quoted Pete the Cat in a meeting at work!! No books have interested my son in reading the way Pete the Cat books have. Our favorites are this one and the 4 Groovy Buttons. I HIGHLY recommend these books for all kids!

NOTE: The first book arrived with the jacket completely ripped and folded, but Amazon replaced it for me right away!

As a children''s librarian I was often asked to suggest books for special needs. One grandmother often brought in a very sweet little boy she cared for during the day. She said everything seemed to bother him. His feelings were even hurt for me, when I was doing a storytime and the other children weren''t listening politely. He worried often.

I yanked Pete the Cat off the shelf and handed it to her. "This is just the thing," and the next time I saw them, I overheard her saying, "But should we worry?" and he answered, "Goodness no!"

Pete the Cat is beloved by children nationwide for a reason. As a former children’s librarian, I read a lot of books to huge crowds of kids, and this is one of my favorites. It’s great that you can go online and hear the song for free whenever you want if you don’t know the tune or want a refresher. The art is a little funky, but kids really like it from my experience. It doesn’t show the reality of mixing colors (sorry art teachers), but it does teach colors and how to just roll with the punches. Pete is a coooool cat who doesn’t let a little mud or strawberry juice ruin his day. I read this to my two year old who absolutely loves it, one of the few books that gets a “More!” every time. It works for older kids too though, one of those books you can read with a toddler and their older sibling without one of them being unhappy. Have the older one sing along, and ask the little one color questions! I recommend Four Groovy Buttons as well with Pete!

My first born has always been a book-lover from a very early age. She''s 5 now and reads every day and loves Pete the Cat! When my second came along, he was not as interested in books. He''s been a little behind his sister developmentally and has been taking speech, PT and OT therapies. He''s 2 now and is just starting to show an interest in books, meaning they actually hold his attention for more than 3 seconds! His speech therapist showed him the Pete the Cat "I Love My White Shoes" video during one of his sessions and he loved it! He walked around the house singing the song for the next few days so, of course, we knew we had to get him the book! We purchased it for his birthday and it is now his favorite book! This book will always be special for us because it was our son''s first favorite book :) I also love that they offer downloadable content with the book so you can listen to the song and read along with it.
This book has a positive message about making the most of a bad situation - when Pete stains his new shoes it doesn''t make him mad, he sees the positive side and has a good attitude about it. It also teaches colors and the repetition is great for little ones learning.

I am an art teacher and look for books to incorporate into my lessons. My students LOVE Pete the Cat books and after reading it to the class we make an art project based on the book. I plan to buy more Pete the Cat books. It was funny how he stepped into different things, stained his new shoes but had a good attitude about it and saw the positive side of each situation. Highly recommend.

My 2.5 year old son loves the Pete the Cat books. Wish they had a board book option, but hardcover helps. His teachers at daycare read these books to their class, so he came home asking for these books at home. Has not stopped reading them since (demands to have me leave one in his crib when I put him to bed, so he can try to read to himself). Check out the YouTube videos for the songs -- so cute, he sings them all the time.

I saw the author and illustrator reading this book on YouTube when my son was a tiny baby loved watching it. Although it''s aimed at slightly older children I bought this for my toddler around his first birthday and, a year and a half later, he is still fairly obsessed with this book. We regularly read it several times a day. I can now recite the story without the book. The pictures are great, the story is lovely and it''s a good way to reinforce knowledge of some colours. I also love the moral of the story encouraging children to take slight bumps in the road in their stride. I recently read this book at a parent and toddler group to all the children. They loved it so much I had to bring it back again. And again. By the third rendition of the song all of the adults were joining in. Some of the wee ones sing "I love my red shoes" to me whenever they see me now, and several families from the group have bought the book. One wee lass gleefully goes everywhere looking for people with red shoes! I would happily recommend it to anyone who either has or works with younger children.
