Contributor Bio(s): Dean, Kimberly: -

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.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Fall)
In the mood to look cool, Pete the cat "asks everyone, 'What should I wear?'" What follows is a recitation of everyone's suggestions ("polka-dots socks,"; "the shorts with fish"), all of which Pete dons and, in the end, looks silly. Deciding to make his own choices, he declares, "Now I am COOL." The dull text and uninspired illustrations provide new readers with little challenge.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2014 July)

K-Gr 2—Always a clotheshorse, Pete begins this easy-to-read story by asking, "What should I wear?" He is trying to look cool for school. Obviously, everyone he queries has a different opinion about his attire, and he takes all of their advice and fashion suggestions. Wearing different colored shirts, shorts with fish on them, cowboy boots, a striped tie, and a baseball cap, he looks silly, feels hot—and goes home. He dons his favorite clothes and "feels just right," concluding, "If you want to be cool,/just be you!" One or two simple sentences per page and large illustrations set against uncluttered white backgrounds make this suitable for the very youngest readers.—Ellie Lease, Harford County Public Library, MD
