Review: Me and My Cat

Me and My Cat Me and My Cat by Ekaterina Trukhan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A girl and her cat enjoy their time together and help each other out.

This is a simple story about friendship and whose heart is in its illustrations. Rendered in colored pencil and what looks to be acrylic, this picturebook is comprised of mostly full page spreads with excellent design avoiding losing material to the gutter. There are two rectos of vignettes showing a series of actions, but otherwise all action is portrayed effectively within each seamless illustration. The focal points of each illustration is surrounded by enoucgh space to offer depth and let the eye focus on the characters. Plus, that cat clearly has a personality.
