You and Me and Everybody Else

Everybody feels the same, sometimes. Our wishes, dreams, thoughts, and feelings are personal to us but all experienced by others. Guided by a friendly page-hopping cat, You and Me and Everybody Else tackles the topics of emotions and experiences in a sympathetic manner, encouraging empathy with others. Depicting real-life situations from sleeping and dreaming, to playing outdoors and laughing with friends, to everyday boredom, this book breaks down barriers and negates cultural differences. As readers turn the pages, the message builds strength: Ultimately, no matter what we look like, or where we come from, we can find links to ourselves in one and other.

What to expect:

- A thought-provoking message about shared empathy that can be translated into everyday life
- A graphic and conceptual illustration style that promotes imagination
- The short texts are accompanied by an illustrated cat on each page, this figure acts as a as a curious spectator and narrative aide
