You and Me

(4) PS Illustrated by Giovanni Manna. Beginning with "I'm a circle, you're a square," a boy and girl imagine each other as wild and tame, young and old, tree and flower, etc. (not all are opposites). Surrealistic watercolor illustrations depict the children "morphing" into different objects; each image is framed with smaller images to create a fine graphic presentation. However, the back-and-forth switch between who is "me" and who is "you" is jarring.
