Description

This is a sweet story about a little girl and her cat.

They are the best of friends, and they do everything together—stump jumping, leaf leaping, slip sliding, and lunch munching. But what happens when Meow goes hide hiding?

Written in singsong text with childlike illustrations, this is the perfect book for children just learning how to read.




About the Author

Adam Gudeon is a children's book writer and illustrator who attended the Pratt School of Art & Design in Brooklyn, New York. He lives with his wife, Monica, and children, Ezra and Iris, in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Though highly allergic to cats, he loves them anyway. This is his first picture book.




Praise For Me and Meow

“The primitive figures are expertly posed and arranged with simple props on color-saturated spreads to reflect the joy and devotion the companions share. Children as young as two years will appreciate the brevity, rhythm, onomatopoeia, and repetition in the text.”
-School Library Journal

“Gudeon’s picture-book debut is high on style and charm as it introduces Me and Meow, a little girl and her cat, in a beginning-reader-friendly tale. ... More, Me and Meow. More. ”
-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Gudeon’s first picture book uses naïf stick figures and candy-colored backgrounds to create a book that feels as if it might have been drawn and written by an actual child.”
-Publishers Weekly
