Synopsis

Me and You by Genevieve Cote

Two artistic friends, paintbrushes in hand I wish I were just like you, says the rabbit to the pig. I wish I were just like you, says the pig to the rabbit. As the friends use paintbrushes and a few props to adjust tails, ears and noses, something soon becomes clear: they liked each other better before. I am me and you are you that's why we love each other, me and you! This gentle celebration of friendship and individuality by award-winning writer and illustrator Genevive Cote will reassure young readers that they are loved and special as themselves. It's a book with all-ages appeal and an ideal gift for a child - or a best friend.

Reviews

The banter of the first-person dialogue is childlike and exuberant and will have kids smiling while subtly reinforcing individuality. Simply charming.--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review Text and illustrations effectively collaborate to create a cozy, cheerful book. A welcome addition with broad appeal.--School Library Journal
