About the Author

Eric Litwinis a guitar-strumming, song-singing, banjo-picking, tale-telling, song-writing, national-award-winning, music-producing, fun, folksy type of guy. He loves to blend song and story together and is inspired by the depth and simplicity of folk songs and folktales. Eric is a popular performer, delighting thousands of children and families every year. He has recorded two award-winning children's music CDs.



In 2004, Kimberly & James Dean sat down at their kitchen table to work on a children's book together. Their dream finally became a reality with the release of 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 in Savannah, sharing their home with five cats and Emma the pug.

I love Pete the Cat and share the books often with my group of 18 3- 4-year-old preschoolers. I preordered this book and just received it. Another hit, I'd say! Here are some of my favorite things about Pete:

1) He teaches kids that they shouldn't sweat the small stuff. Buttons pop off...they come and they go, but should you cry? Goodness no!

2) This new book is good for early subtraction skills. It even shows the math equations.

3) I use the video to learn the songs and the story the way it's meant to be told. Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas, and teachers: You can do this, too, to make the book fun with the appropriate groovy singing and sound effects!!

4) Colorful and fun illustrations!

Have fun!!

We just received our new Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons today and already I read it 5 times to my kids. It is written so well - very concise. Pictures are really descriptive. Teaches about emotions and how to handle situations (that a lot of kids respond to with tantrums because they can't deal) with Pete's signature motto "It's all Good" in a way that kids can understand and apply to their own lives. It's my go-to book for gifts for little children. Never met a kid that didn't get obsessed with Pete the Cat.

I bought this for my four, almost five-year-old granddaughter. I thought this book was way too young for her seven-year-old brother. I was wrong. I read it to both of them every night I was at their home. All three of us laughed and laughed about it. Great, fun book. I later found out this is from a series so will buy more.

Here he comes again...That cool cat and his shoes....This third book was so cute...my Kindergarten ESL students love the Pete the Cat books..I told them I was going to get the new book. And trust me, it was worth it. I think I was more excited than they were. It's a great read aloud for kids in grades K-2; Features math sentences as well...A definite must have for that Pete the Cat fan!

My daughter is a HUGE Pete the Cat fan. She can recite the first book verbatim. We love all the books because they are easy for young kids to try to read (my daughter is 3) and teach such great lessons (especially about not sweating the small stuff). It is great for parents because whenever my daughter starts to get upset about something we ask her, "Does Pete cry?" and her smiling response is, "Goodness No!" This new book is teaching basic math too and now my daughter goes around the house say, "Buttons come and buttons go but do we cry? Goodness no!" I'm so excited for the Christmas book and any future Pete the Cat books! These books are gems.

Pete is a resilient cat. He doesn't cry! Goodness no! A great book, along with the first Pete the Cat to teach children to not get too upset over the little things. This book has a great surprise that made kindergarteners, 1st graders and their teachers laugh with surprise. Great book that motivates my kindergarteners to read it over and over again.

We love Pete the Cat. He's a staple in our house- we even had Pin the Shoes on Pete at my daughter's bday party. This new installment is just as cute, containing a laugh out loud surprise. But... the song is just not as catchy. When I find myself singing a kids song, as I did with the shoe song, I know it's good. The button song is just not catching on though. However, the message the story imparts is the important thing. Do we cry? "Goodness No!" Things come and go, and we need to be "all good" with that!

This is another winner. Such a simple idea but the children love it. Teaches counting and beginning subtraction. The kids like the go with the flow attitude it promotes.
