Pete the Cat and his Magic Sunglasses

Cover: 'Pete the Cat and his Magic Sunglasses'

Staff Review: "Pete the Cat and his Magic Sunglasses" by Kimberly Dean, James Dean


Cool-cat Pete the Cat is back with his laid-back personality and going-with-the-flow mantra. Pete wakes up grumpy one morning and cannot seem to be happy. Pete's friend Grumpy Toad gives him a pair of magic sunglasses that make Pete see the world in a new, more positive way. Pete helps out other friends who are feeling frustrated, mad and sad with his magic sunglasses. With some help from Wise Old Owl, Pete learns that you don't need a special pair of sunglasses to feel happy, you just need to look for the good in every day. A great read for toddlers, preschoolers, and even caregivers about positivity.
