Party With Pete This Saturday!!!

Little Shop of Stories
Saturday       March 6th       7pm

Everyone is welcome at Little Shop of Stories this Saturday evening, March 6th, at 7 p.m. for a Pete Party!  We're celebrating the release this week of Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes.

The story behind the book is a fairytale in itself.  Eric Litwin, a local storyteller and musician, had an idea for a children's book starring Pete the Cat.  A chance random meeting with James Dean, a local artist and creator of Pete, started the collaboration.  Eric and James put the book together and published it themselves.  Amazingly successful, the first printing sold out.  Outrageously successful, the even bigger second printing also sold out.

In the meantime, multiple big time publishers began knocking on their doors.

The result: Harper Collins has just published Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes.  (It's pretty much the same book that was self-published, but with a different cover.)  Harper is promoting the book nationally and pretty aggressively.  They're sending Eric and James out on the road starting next week.  Yes, Pete is going coast-to-coast!  (But we get them here first!)

Help send Eric and James off on their multi-state bookstore tour!  We'll have music!  We'll have art!  We'll have goodies!  We'll have exclamation points!  (Those of you who came to Terra's book release party last year may recall that we throw a pretty darn good book release party!)

We hope to see you all Saturday night!  White shoes are optional.
