Husband and wife team Kimberly and James Dean started out in 2008 and began the character of Pete the Cat. In this book, one day Pete did not feel happy. It was raining and he had the blue cat blues. But he got on his yellow skateboard and ran into Grumpy Toad who was wearing a pair of blue sunglasses. Toad offered his blue sunglasses to Pete, telling him that “These COOL, BLUE, MAGIC sunglasses make the blues go away.” Pete put on the sunglasses and looked around. “RIGHT ON!”
From then on Pete runs into all sorts of friends in the neighborhood offering the sunglasses to all in need of cheering up. Well, of course, there’s a moral to the story and it’s from wise Old Owl. You’ll just have to guess what advice the old guy has to offer Pete unless of course you read the book.
