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.

Format: Hardcover
Last school year I introduced our K-4 class to Pete the Cat Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. Those children LOVED that blue cat soooo much that they clamored for Pete three weeks in a row. In fact, when they insisted on the fourth time, I had to just say no and read another book. Imagine my total happiness when I found "Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes."

So, were the children happy to see a new book about Pete during their first visit to the library for the new school year? Goodness No! They clamored for "Pete the Cat" again. I read it once then again by demand. I thought, "Well. They don't want the new Pete." But I was wrong.

When they arrived in the library for their second visit of the new school year, they said, "Read 'Pete the Cat' again!" I responded: "What about the new book?" "Yes," they clamored. They immediately picked up the new words and began singing right along: "I'm rocking in my school shoes. I'm rocking in my school shoes."

And: "I'm eating in my school shoes. I'm eating in my school shoes." And: "I'm reading in my school shoes...." Where? "In the Library!" Oh, what a rocking cat! What a rocking book! Erick Litwin and James Dean, you guys have made so many children so happy with your cool Pete and his little yellow bird friend and, of course, those most excellent shoes.

I think that's all I need to say, but I will add that the illustrations are lively, bold, joyous, and inviting. Pete the Cat is a wildly popular book character, who now lives, I might add, in our library. He sits atop my reading chair, waiting to play with all boys and girls. He might even toss in a "I'm rocking in my school shoes!

Pete the Cat has returned and this time he is wearing his school shoes! Litwin and Dean have created another super stellar story of Pete in school. Pete goes through his school day having experiences that all school children can relate to while singing and dancing and rockin' and groovin'. Make sure you download the music that accompanies the book and you, too, will be singing and dancing along with Pete! If you haven't read Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, be sure to purchase that book too!

This is a new Pete the cat! We see him going to school! We are treated to a school tour and all the things Pete will do at school in his "school shoes"! Children will enjoy Pete's school adventure, because, "It's all GOOD!"

Kindergarteners and Preschoolers at my Story Times have been rocking out with Pete for three years, and we are eating up his new title! One look at Pete, and kids know that he is the coolest cat they'll ever meet. His song is jammin, and the base beat ignites head bobs, shoulder shimmies and hip hop moves throughout the entire audience. Thank you, thank you to Litwin and Dean for another winning picture book!

Easy read, nice beat. Web site with songs. Written by a slightly hippie pair. Children love the story and listen to it over and over.

This book and all the series are awesome! Easy ya to start the morning with fun and dance, even in a hurry... Playing the music online while reading the books makes it easy to participate and not have to flip the pages for the littles ones, as they find their way through the books on their own and learn along the way!

My daughter first read Pet the Cat (I love my white shoes) when she was spending 13 days at the hospital, really sick. She LOVED it, and the positive message, and the funny way we made up to sing about Pete's shoes!
I since bought the I Love my White Shoes and then the Rocking in My Shool Shoes. We read them everyday!
