Meet Groovy Joe, a fun-lovin’, guitar-strummin’, doggy-ice-cream-eatin’ pup as he wrangles three hungry dinosaurs and soon has them singing, grooving, and sharing! 

Groovy Joe was living the dream.
He had a spoon and tub of doggy ice cream.
And he started to sing:
Love my doggy ice cream! Love my doggy ice cream!

Eric Litwin, author of the bestselling and beloved Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, and bestselling artist Tom Lichtenheld, illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, have created a captivating new canine character who will groove his way into readers’ hearts and have them grooving and giggling all the while. In his debut adventure, Groovy Joe faces three roaring dinosaurs hungry for his doggy ice cream! Oh no! But Joe knows just what to do and soon enough he has them all sharing while moving and singing along.

  • Signature rhyme, repetition, and musical writing style, combined with wild and witty illustrations, come together to create an unforgettable new character who embodies positivity, creativity, and kindness. Groovy Joe is here, ready to get groovy!
  • Visit the website to hear the free downloadable musical performance of this rocking story in English and Spanish. While you’re there, check out “The Groovy Dance,” Joe’s very own disco doggy dance track!”

What Happily Blended Media Thinks of Groovy Joe

As an avid lover of books, you will find my boys and I seated around each other on the bed or the couch reading some of Pete the Cat books. We fell in love with Pete the Cat and can often be found adding to our collection of books similar to that when attending the local school book fairs. Having a chance to check out Groovy Joe’s book, knowing that the author is Eric who wrote Pete the Cat? We were excited. I will tell you what, Eric didn’t let us down with Groovy Joe and I look forward to seeing the future titles featuring Groovy Joe! I can quickly see Groovy Joe taking off big time, just as his Pete the Cat series have.

We recommend Groovy Joe to every family with young children, this makes for the perfect way to bond over entertainment through reading.
