KIRKUS REVIEW

The cozy, 30-year-old title gets bright new illustrations from Wolff and is primed for a new generation of children. Tiny couplets—“Pigeons with park/Stars with dark/Sand with sea/and you with me”—accompany richly colored illustrations with an old-fashioned feel. Some of the couplings are quite puckish, as when “Franks with beans/Kings with queens” is illustrated by a boy and girl bedecked in royal robes digging in to that famous dish. The reassuring refrain of “you with me” (or “me with you”) is complemented by scenes of a child with an adult in poses of affection and protection: reading together, holding hands by the sea, cuddling. The original was grand, but here’s a chance to replace those lost and worn copies. (Picture book. 2-6)
