Eric Litwin (aka Mr. Eric) is the New York Times bestselling author of Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. He is a guitar-strumming, song-singing, story-telling, banjo-picking, harmonica-blowing, fun and folksy type of guy. He is a popular performer who has recorded several award-winning children?s music CDs. Eric is also the cofounder of the Learning Groove?, a dynamic early-learning music company. Eric is a former classroom teacher, and this story is inspired by all the students who, like Pete the Cat, say ?yes? to learning and facing new challenges.
