In 2004, Kimberly and James Dean sat down at their kitchen table to work on a children's book together. Their dream has finally become a reality with the release of the new Pete the Cat book, Pete's 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 is starting Kindergarten and is excited to begin his day. This book goes through the different rooms of an elementary school and talk about the importance of each one.
