        James Dean is the original creator and illustrator of Pete the Cat. He is a self-taught artist originally from Fort Payne, Alabama. His passion for drawing became apparent at a young age, and as a child, you could find James drawing his favorite characters like Snoopy and Yogi Bear.

        James earned his degree in electrical engineering from Auburn University and went on to work for Georgia Power for a number of years. Eventually, he was called to pursue his art full-time and began selling his work at art festivals around the Southeast.

        It was during this time that he began creating paintings and drawing of his cat, Pete. The little blue cat showed up as a character in James's artwork around 1999 and has been a permanent fixture ever since.

        James Dean's art has been sold in more than ninety galleries and shops across the United States. He has devoted his paintings to Pete the Cat for fifteen years and turned his natural love for cats into his life's work. James published his first book, The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a history of his artwork, in 2006, and he illustrated his first self-published children's book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, in 2008. There are now almost 100 published Pete the Cat titles with more coming out all the time.

        James is humbled every day by the success that this groovy blue cat has brought him. He says positively affecting children's lives is his number one priority, and he is grateful to have such an amazing audience to work for.

        May 1, 2014
        The Pete the Cat cash machine grinds out another nursery-rhyme-based picture book (Old MacDonald Had a Farm, 2014).Here, the heavy-lidded cat contemplates (kind of) a twinkling star. The book's chief value is in reproducing all five stanzas of the traditional rhyme, presumably to give artist Dean enough material to fill another 32 pages. The aesthetics that have informed the franchise throughout are scrupulously maintained, resulting in the odd, if predictable, disconnect between the celebratory text and the couldn't-care-less protagonist. The verse "How I wonder what you are!" is paired with an image of Pete letting his stoner stare rest on readers, ignoring the telescope that is trained on the twinkling star: He couldn't look further from wonderment. In a delightful departure from his approach in Old MacDonald, Dean seems to be trying to impose a narrative in which Pete ends his day of play to go home, eat supper with his equally bored-looking family, bathe and go to bed. Unfortunately, inconsistency in the color of the sky-it's often painted noonday blue and at the beginning discordantly shifts from dusky blue to sunset yellow-unmoors readers, and the illustrations often have nothing to do with the text. Pete is at his most appealing when asleep and dreaming of flying a spaceship to the star, one of the only moments in the book when text, tone and visuals truly align.For fans only. (Picture book. 4-8)
