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.
