The First Four Pete the Cat Picture Books are Written by Eric Litwin


Dear Reader


I am the author of the first four Pete the Cat Picture Books: I Love My White Shoes, Rocking in My School Shoes, Four Groovy Buttons and Pete the Cat Saves Christmas. These four books have sold around 1.5 million copies, were # 1 New York Times Bestsellers, were translated in seven languages and won 17 state and national awards! What I am most proud of is how they have excited beginning readers.


Pete the Cat is featured in several new books by other authors.  Only the books with my name on them were written by me. There are no plans for me to write any additional Pete the Cat books.


I have wonderful new characters and books available. The first is called The Nuts, Bedtime at the Nut House.  In my new books I will continue to write simple, musical and interactive stories with positive messages. I will also continue to share my Pete the Cat stories at live performances. 


So stay tuned and stay positive because “it’s all good”.
