Title:  Pete the cat and his four groovy buttons

Authors:  created and illustrated by James Dean ; story by Eric Litwin

Collection:  Childrens EZ Books

Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt-the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness no! He just keeps on singing his song-after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons? Count down with Pete in this rocking new story from the creators of the bestselling Pete the Cat books.

Pete the cat loves the buttons on his shirt so much that he makes up a song about them, and even as the buttons pop off, one by one, he still finds a reason to sing.

Groovy Pete the Cat must be from New York or New Jersey, since she shows the resilience and strength that many of the victims of Hurricane Sandy have embodied this week.  My favorite quote from the book:  ” I guess it simply goes to show that stuff will come and stuff will go. But do we cry? Goodness, NO!  We keep on singing.”
