“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.”
