Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party

 ATHENS, Ga. — Athens-Clarke County Library and Avid Bookshop present an evening with author and artist James Dean on Tuesday, Sept. 3, at 6:30 p.m., in celebration of his latest picture book, PETE THE CAT AND THE PERFECT PIZZA PARTY.

 Join us in the library’s Multipurpose Rooms to meet the author and kick off September as Library Card Sign-up Month! Keeping with the theme of the book, free pizza will be available while supplies last. Books will also be available for purchase and signing.

 It’s a party, a party, a perfect pizza party! That’s what Pete thinks as he piles the pie high with his favorite topping—pepperoni. But then his friends come over and add their own toppings to the pizza. Will Pete’s perfect pizza be ruined? There’s only one way to find out! In this picture book full of fun alliteration and tasty foods by New York Times bestselling author and illustrator team Kimberly and James Dean, Pete and the gang learn that the best kind of pizza is one you share with your friends.

James Dean’s art has sold in more than 90 galleries and shops across the United States. He has devoted his paintings to Pete the Cat for 15 years and has turned his natural love for cats into his life’s work. James published his first adult book, The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a history of his artwork, in 2006. He illustrated his first self-published children’s book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, in 2008, and the follow-up book, Pete the Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes, in 2011. Dean lives in Savannah with his wife, four cats and one dog. You can visit him online at

 This event is free and open to the public. The event is cohosted by The Athens-Clarke County Library and Avid Bookshop. For more information, call the library at (706) 613-3650. The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens.
