Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
Written by Eric Litwin
Illustrated by James Dean
All of my favorite children's books have one thing in common: a very unique and lovable character. This is so true of Pete the Cat. I am not a cat lover by any stretch of the means, but I love Pete. Pete is undoubtedly the coolest cat around. He is the only one that I am aware of that drives a minibus and rocks out.
I love all of the books in the Pete the Cat series, but Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons is the favorite of every member of our family. Pete's favorite shirt has four buttons that he loves, and one by one, he loses them all. Pete is always good at rolling with the punches and never gets upset about anything because he is such a cool cat. "It's all good," Pete says. At the end of the story, he has lost every one of his buttons, but he still doesn't get upset because his button-less shirt reveals a button that he hasn't lost.
