A little background. Eric is the author of many books and he is a musician.

Nearly 20,000 preschoolers voted for the 2011 Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award, and "Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes" by Eric Litwin was the runaway winner with 8,297 votes.

Poor Pete is just a blue cat who walks down the street in his new white shoes, singing a song and stepping in all kinds of colorful messes.

Children love to sing along, while answering the question "Does Pete cry?" with a resounding " Goodness no!" after he steps in strawberries, blueberries, mud and more.

Besides a teaching tool, Pete shows that no matter what happens in life, just keep on walking and singing a song."
