Who Wrote the Book of Love? Pete the Cat's Groovy Guide to Love by Kimberly and James Dean

So are we supposed to take advice on LOVE from a blue cartoon cat?

Pete the Cat gets by with a little help from some pretty good gurus on the subject, from Picasso to Confucious, Audrey Hepburn to Oliver Wendell Holmes, from Paul Tillich to Paul McCartney, from Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Pierre Beaumarchais, from Virgil to Van Gogh.

There are some of the best words of wisdom in Pete's list, each given its own page:

"If you want to be loved, be loving." -- Ovid

"Love is friendship set to music." -- James Campbell

"Love is patient. Love is kind." I Corinthians 13: 4-8.

Kimberly and James Dean's Pete the Cat's Groovy Guide to Love (Harper) has both deep thoughts from all sorts of sages and upbeat and breezy interpretations for kids in Pete's take on the book of love, and for adults there is some good advice as well, as Paul Tillich advised, "The first duty of love is to listen." Dean's famous cheery indigo feline offers some lively insights on all sorts of love, even self-love, while keeping the mood on the sunny side of the street.

Based on the style of Kimberly and James Dean's earlier Pete the Cat's Groovy Guide to Life, this one adds to Pete the Cat's library of his philosophy of life-- "It's ALL good."
