Last Spring, Eric Litwin, author of the Pete the Cat series came to speak at my daughters' elementary school.  The kids went all out - Pete the Cat artwork all over the wall, prepared questions to ask Mr. Litwin at the assembly.  When the girls got off the bus all they could talk about was the NEW book coming out by Eric Litwin.  

Partnering with Tom Lichtenheld, illustrator of one of Will's favorite books, Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, Groovy Joe tells the story of a guitar strummin', ice cream lovin' dog who tames three dinosaurs and by the end of the book has them all singing along.

As soon as Groovy Joe arrived at our house, the kids couldn't wait to read it.  

Groovy Joe is great for girls and boys.  The illustrations and story are fun and engaging and teaches a great lesson to children.

Groovy Joe and his dino friends are now the number 1 requested story at our house.  For more information or to bring Groovy Joe to your house, visit
