You and Me is a loving tribute to how fate brought two best friends together. An adorable cat muses about the what-ifs in life: What if he had slept late that one special morning? What if he'd missed his train on that fateful day? Then he might never have met his favorite person in the world, and his entire life would be different!
Two friends delight in the incredible power of serendipity in this charming tale. Illustrated by the bestselling Peter H. Reynolds, You and Me is the ultimate gift for the closest of friends on Valentine's Day or any day of the year.

Love this little book and the beautiful illustrations... warning, if you are of a certain age and inclination, you might end up with an earworm of the Grace Jones song "Everybody Hold Still"... which is not a bad thing. But the song doesn't have a happy ending.

SUMMARY: This is the story of a cat who is thinking back about how he became friends with his best friend. He thinks about all the little things that could have slowed him down and kept him from meeting his new friend.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created with ink, gouache, watercolor and tea. There are plenty of fun, but slightly muted colors and nice details.

THE GOOD: This is a story of friendship and how deep it can be.
THE NOT AS GOOD: This story is written for children, but is very abstract in nature. Little kids will not get the full effect of what it means to meet a friend because of "fate" and everything happening by the second in order for two people to meet. The abstract concept did not feel right for a children's book for this age range.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Advertised for ages 5-7, but ages 8-10 would understand it better.
