Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs


Created in collaboration with Eric Litwin

Groovy Joe is a guitar playing, fun-lovin' pup with lots of spirit and a song to share. This new series, written by best-selling author/musician Eric Litwin (Pete The Cat), starts with "ICE CREAM AND DINOSAURS," wherein Joe discovers doggy ice cream, then discovers that dinosaurs love it as much as he does. What will Joe do when the dinosaurs want his ice cream? And what will he do when he runs out of ice cream?? Find out if Joe can sing his way out of this prehistoric predicament!

"This celebration of sharing has everything: an ice cream-themed refrain for kids to shout out, big stomping dinosaurs who can also cut a rug, and a lovable furry dog."


"When Joe gets groovin' on his guitar, madcap times ensue. The irresistible dog and his sidekick squirrel belt out a cool tune while they slurp up their favorite "Haagen Dogs" ice cream and gyrate wildly. Children will want to move and groove along with the mischievous and playful dog and his hefty and humorous friends in this colorful rhyming story, sure to capture lots of attention."


"This title has all the elements of a classic Litwin story: fun characters, a heartwarming message, and a catchy song. It also has things that kids love: dogs, dinosaurs, and ice cream. Lichtenheld's illustrations are adorable and give all the characters personalities. The story is fun and repetitive without being annoying, which makes it a good choice for storytimes, and there's a great message about sharing. A welcome purchase."
