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.

Pete the Cat:  The First Thanksgiving LOOKS like the Pete the Cat that I have come to love, but he doesn't SOUND like the Pete the Cat I have come to love.  *sigh*  I miss Eric Litwin already. Pete the Cat is in a Thanksgiving play, so he recounts the story of the first Thanksgiving.  The story is adequate, but not especially good, and definitely nowhere near close to the singing "It's all good" Pete in books past.  The artwork is still brilliant.  Actually, it feels like the artwork was created first and the story was filled in around it.  As a general rule, I find that really excellent illustrators do not make really excellent storytellers.  This book does not break that rule.
